Solar Grant Information

The RVR Solar HP Range, Calpak 12VTN and TiSun FM-S are all eligible for grant funding under the SEI Greener homes scheme.

Funding available

The greener homes scheme provides funding for solar systems based on the amount of collector installed. This is based on the total aperture area of the panels.

  • For flat panels you can get a grant of €250 per m2 of aperture (up to a maximum of 6m2)
  • For vacuum collectors you can get a grant of €300 per m2 of aperture (up to a maximum of 6m2)

For example, an installation with two Calpak 12VTN collectors would be eligible for a grant of 1.95m2 of aperture x €300 for vacuum collectors x 2 panels. E.g. 1.95 * 300 * 2 = €1170


  • The house for which you are applying must be an existing house, have an existing heating system and must have been occupied for a minimum of one year.
  • You must own the house where the system is to be installed.
