Trusted Solar Panel Components

AEI uses solar systems from Dutch company Autarco, which provides them with all components of each solar system they install. Because Autarco supplies the full system, from the panels to the inverter, customers are given a system output guarantee which is unique in Ireland.

This output guarantee is a huge safety net for the homeowner, as Autarco monitors the system performance to make sure the system has been installed as per design and to ensure the system performs as promised over the first 5 years.

If your system yields less than estimated, you get cashback for every missed kWh!

Quote to Installation Timeline

AEI typically has a turnaround period of three to four weeks from quote to installation for domestic solar.

Solar Panel Installations Made Easy

AEI has an aftersales department for any queries or issues after the installation is completed. The helpful team at AEI guides customers as much as possible throughout their solar journey, claiming the grant back on the homeowners’ behalf so that the client only pays the net price after the grant is taken into consideration. AEI also takes care of all the grant paperwork for the customer to make things as simple as possible.

Heat recovery ventilation

AEI also carries out heat recovery ventilation installations. Simply put, a heat recovery ventilation (HRV) system is a method of ventilating a property without drilling a series of 100mm holes in each room to ventilate the building with outdoor air, which could lead to cold, hot, stale, smelly, pollen filled, and humid entering a home. The mechanical system eliminates these issues, ensuring a well ventilated home without the heat loss.

The AEI Team

The AEI Team

AEI boasts a large team of 30 staff, with reliable and trusted solar panel experts carrying out 12 installations per week. Stephen, AEI’s installation manager for Solar PV, leads a team which carries out solar PV installations across the country.

An installation team led by installation manager Pat looks after all mechanical works for plumbing and ventilation installations. All AEI installers are certified to install a wide range of technologies that they sell.

AEI Customer Reviews

I had reviewed a number of suppliers before I finally chose AEI for my solar panels solution. Pricing is a large factor in the decision but the service pre and post is also critical… The installation team couldn’t have been more pleasant, professional and detailed in their work (clearly take pride in their work and profession) and the post install after sale experience really is excellent so far.

Simon Behan, ★★★★★

We had our Solar Panels installed in April and would highly recommend AEI for their work. From the very beginning inquiring about prices and installation process, Pauric was very helpful and explained every step of the work. Once we signed up Jason kept us informed every step of the way and answered any queries we had. The work was quick enough and the lads were friendly and tidy. The app is grand for checking how much electricity we are generating. No problems so far but I’m sure I would have no problem getting anything sorted, good team working there.

Patricia Hatchell, ★★★★★

Excellent service, the guys were very easy to deal with and they always kept me well informed with progress over the course of the project. Highly recommended.

John Kenna, ★★★★★

Had my house assessed and kitted out with a 7 panel Solar PV solution, including inverter, EV Charger and Hot water diverted. Great system, easy to use. AEI also did all the grant paperwork which made working with them very easy.
