As a leading provider of solar PV solutions in Dublin, we are excited to share some great news with our customers. The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has recently announced changes to the Non-Domestic Microgen Grant (NDMG) scheme, which provides financial assistance for the installation of solar PV panels. This is a significant development for businesses, farms, schools, community centres, and non-profit organisations looking to reduce their commercial electricity costs and contribute to Ireland’s climate goals.
Understanding the Non-Domestic Microgen Grant
The NDMG scheme offers a government grant of up to €162,600, based on the standard output of your solar PV system. The grant funding is available for systems up to a maximum of 1000kWp. If a larger size system is installed, then the installation will not be considered eligible to claim the NDMG grant.
Grant Amounts for the Solar PV System
The grant amount varies depending on the size of the solar PV system installed. Here’s a breakdown of the grant value based on the system size:
Solar PV System Size Grant Value
4kWp to 6kWp €2,400
7kWp – 20kWp €300/kWp
21kWp – 200kWp €200/kWp
201kWp – 1000kWp €150/kWp
Who is Eligible for the Grant?
This grant is available to:
- The agricultural sector
- Public sector bodies
- Community centres
- Non-profit societies
How to Apply for the Grant
The application process for the grant is straightforward. First, find and appoint a Registered SEAI Non-Domestic Microgen (Solar PV) Company and get a quote from at least two registered companies. Once you’ve chosen your preferred company and agreed on a formal contract, you can apply to SEAI for a Grant Offer. Your installer will then apply to ESB Networks to connect the solar PV system to the electricity network. Once approved, the installation can go ahead.
