Enhanced supports for business through Solar PV Scheme

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

The Government has today (Tuesday, 4 July) approved amendments to the existing Non-Domestic Microgeneration Scheme, operated by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), to extend supports to a wider range of businesses and non-domestic applicants. This will be done through tiered grant supports for solar PV – for installation sizes greater than 6 kWp up to 1,000 kWp (1 MW) capacity.


  • New funding ranges from €2,700 to €162,600 to support an even wider range of businesses to switch to solar

  • This will typically support 20-30% of the investment cost, reducing payback to as little as 5 years

  • New Solar PV Scheme enhancements will boost business investment in renewable energy generation

The new range of installation sizes will cover a significant variety of businesses, from small local shops up to large manufacturing facilities. It will also be available for public buildings, sports clubs and community organisations. An installation size of 1000 kWp equates to approximately 2,500 solar PV panels, which could be accommodated on a large factory or warehouse rooftop.
