Solar FAQS

Everybody’s got questions. If we haven’t answered yours below, just call +353 1 699 3340 and one of our humans will be happy to talk to you.

No, there is no upfront cost to you. We install the entire system and take care of all the costs associated with the project. All you do is agree to purchase the clean energy we generate at a fixed cost for the term of our agreement.

UrbanVolt’s Solar as a Service will always cost less than you currently pay for electricity from your fossil fuel based utility provider. Typically, costs are as low as €0.10c per kWh to as high as €0.19c per kWh. Building size, power requirements and commitment term determine your price per kWh.

Our terms are 10 yrs, 20 yrs or 30 yrs. Our clients typically lock in their rate for the longest term possible to remove the risk of escalating energy prices.

You will have the option to either (a) extend the agreement at a pre-agreed discount to published energy rates at the time or (b) terminate the agreement and we will remove the panels.

No. You only pay for what you consume. Our bills are based on your actual metered energy consumption from the solar panels rather than the energy production capability of the system.

UrbanVolt clients can expand their solar installation and sell excess power to the grid on a profit sharing basis.

Yes, the orientation of the roof determines how much power is produced and south-facing is best. Solar panels will generate energy on almost all roof spaces but the output may be less in some locations.

Larger solar systems on commercial rooftops will typically require planning permission. Solar PV systems installed in a domestic setting under 12 sq. m (and representing less than 50% of the total roof area) are exempt from planning. UrbanVolt's Project Managers submit the planning permission application on your behalf.

If your roof needs maintenance in the near term, you should complete it before you begin your solar installation.

The installation process is straightforward but the attachment method varies by roof type. The universal components are the panels, inverters, mounting points and a racking system to which the panels are attached.
