The Solar Meitheal

The Solar Meitheal project aims to create groups of homeowners/businesses who want to get Solar Photovoltaic installations done.

Working together as a group, the meaning of 'meitheal', to negotiate as a group with suppliers/installers, bringing prices down and sharing the workload.

The groups will either be based around a location or an installation type, e.g. a group from the Ennistymon area, or a group that want complex installations with batteries etc.

Once each group has agreed on a supplier/installer each member of the group will then sign an individual contract with the chosen supplier/installer. The supplier/installer will then handle the grant application with SEAI and the actual work individually.

Clare Community Energy Agency will provide :

  • the project co-ordination
  • the process for selecting the supplier/installer
  • individual help to learn about photovoltaic installations.

If you are interested in joining the Solar Meitheal either to get an installation done, or just to follow progress, please fill out this form.
