Mayo based Solar Technology PVEnergy is a Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland registered company installer
Why PV Energy
Solar PVE Ireland owner and Managing Director John Coffey has eight years experience in the Solar PV business, he explains: “The opening of this, the first office in the Republic of Ireland, presents our expertise across the supply chain as well as the latest solar rooftop technology, to enable customers to capitalise on an economical, renewable power source that is expected to reach 1-2 gigawatts in Ireland by 2020.”
To ensure that we keep to the very high standards of the 5MW of installations carried out in the UK we have partnered with an SEAI accredited solar installer Stephen Saunderson from Co. Roscommon who will control all installations.
We only supply PV panels that have UK Micro-generation Certification Scheme (MCS) compliance, and all our PV panels are registered and verified with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) – and are listed on the SEAI Triple E, and Microgen databases.
As part of our due diligence we request, and importantly verify, all third party certificates, including:
All modules have to pass electroluminescence (EL) inspection
We only supply PV modules that have a positive power tolerance (sometimes known as ‘plus sorting’) – each PV panel is flash tested (electroluminescence) before it leaves the factory and we only accept panels that are rated at the badged wattage or above. i.e A 270w panel will have been tested to have a peak output of 270w or more. We do not accept PV panels that have a negative tolerance on the peak output. i.e. where a 270w panel could have a +5% or -5% tolerance.
All modules have to withstand challenging environmental conditions
• Wind and snow load tests
• Hail stone tests
• Ammonia resistance
• Salt mist resistance
• Resistance to sand and dust abrasion
With Ireland’s ambitious renewable energy targets positioning the country centre stage in Europe, the Government looks poised to support and invest in the use of solar to deliver on its promises by 2020. This is very positive news for homeowners and business owners looking to capitalise on this opportunity in addition to the already inherent economical and environmental benefits of solar.
