Homeowners across the country, in a quest to reduce their ever increasing energy bills and offset their carbon footprint, are turning their attention to the sky, to embrace the limitless energy of the sun.

As well as an increase in demand for solar energy, there has been a shift towards energy efficiency more generally. Companies providing services have sprung up across Ireland, allowing homeowners to avail of alternative energy sources and increase the overall energy efficiency of their homes.

But despite this increase in demand, many people have questions, concerns and doubts about whether they can afford to participate in this green revolution.

Here at EnergyEfficiency.ie, we address these doubts.

As Ireland’s leading provider of information and support related to all things energy, we compare electricity providers’ rates, give expert advice on all things solar, and connect Irish households with the most trusted (and best value) solar installers in the country.

The Current Issues With Renewables in Ireland


Despite more people becoming interested in alternative energy sources, there is a lack of accurate, reliable and impartial information for homeowners and businesses.


The world of installers can feel like a minefield, with limited information about the most reliable, highly rated installers in each county, and the value for money each of them offer.


Household energy expenditure has soared by over 150% during this energy crisis, meaning homeowners have less in their pockets at the end of each month.


Much of the information found online is not relevant to Ireland. Each country has their own grants, incentives, laws and prices, and many energy websites have information that is completely irrelevant to Ireland.
