Government grants


PV Grant Scheme

Virtue Solaris is officially enrolled as PV Retailer approved by the Regulator for Energy and Water Services (REWS). This means that we are in a position to offer our clients the possibility to benefit from the government grants scheme which aims at assisting households in procuring renewable energy systems.

Official enrollment with REWS also means that Virtue Solaris passed all the necessary regulatory scrutiny, and our products and services are registered with the government regulator and conform to the highest applicable international standards.

Below is useful information about the current grants scheme which applies to households. The scheme is not available for commercial premises.

New applications are accepted as from Tuesday 5th May 2020. This scheme is being governed by Government Notice 438.

This 2020 scheme follows exactly the same procedures as for the past scheme and private individuals (natural persons) making use of space on their residential properties, and organisations that are not carrying out an economic activity may gain from this scheme.

This new but similar scheme is nationally funded and the budget allocation for this scheme amounts to €3M.
