Ireland kicks off grant scheme for domestic solar plus storage installations. Homeowners in Ireland can now access grants worth hundreds of euros to fund the installation of solar and energy storage systems as the government launches its first micro-generation scheme for the technology. This pilot scheme offers €700 (~£625) per kWp of solar installed up to 2kWp, at which point any installation up to 4kWp must include a battery storage system for which a fixed €1,000 (~£892) grant is now also available. Just days after securing approval for a national large scale Renewable Energy Support Scheme, the minister for communications, climate action and environment Denis Naughten explained that a typical three-bed semi-detached home would spend about €1,800 on a solar panel system and save approximately €220 per year on their bills.
