Meet Your CORK Solar PANELs Experts
One of the smartest investments you can make as a property owner is the installation of solar panels. The adoption of domestic and commercial solar energy solutions has been showing a large rise in popularity over the past number of years. Still, even an intelligent investment needs reliable hands at the wheel. JK Services is a family-run electrical contractor that has been proudly serving the people and businesses of County Cork for over thirty-five years. We are fully trained and certified PV solar panel installers, and we are ready to bring the benefits of solar power to your home or business.
Every day countries burn fossil fuels to create electricity, and while there is sometimes disagreement on the degree to which this behaviour harms our planet, there is little doubt that it does. Meanwhile, far more energy is shining down on Ireland from the sun than we use, and solar technology is the way we harness that free energy. You can use solar to create electricity or heat water directly and efficiently. Get in touch with your Cork Solar Panels experts today.
SAVE ON ENERGY BILLS!
The average family* will save €400 per year on their electricity bills using solar panels on their home. They will also be entitled to a €2,100 grant from SEAI for the solar panel installation which costs @ €5,400. This means an annual return on their investment of 12% for the lifetime of the installation – not bad when banks are offering 0% return on savings!
*Example based on a family of 4, with a house built in 2002 Macroom, Cork where there is someone home 50% of the time. Figures based on a 3KW system installed on a south-facing roof.
How Suitable is Cork for Solar Power?
As beautiful as Ireland is, it is not known for being in one of the sunnier parts of the world. It is only natural to wonder if places like Cork City are suitable for solar power. After all, what good is solar power if you don’t get enough sun?
Fortunately, we have lots of data on how solar works out in County Cork, and we can confidently say there is more than enough sun and daylight hours. The design and orientation of your property can be a limiting factor, but we are confident we can install your system in such a way that it produces more than enough power.
Payback on Solar Panels in Cork
One of the most significant advantages of solar systems is that, over time, they pay for themselves. This is because you will be using less—if any—electricity from your supplier, reducing your utility bills. As a rough guide, a PV Solar system can pay for itself in as little as seven years thanks to the money you are not spending on gas or electricity. Sooner, if you get a SEAI grant.
A professional solar panel install should keep generating power for twenty years or more, so you will have long-since recouped the cost of install by the time anything needs replacing. Our qualified team of electricians are certified to install your solar panels in Cork today.
At JKS Electrical Solutions, we pride ourselves on offering the full package, from home EV Charger installs in Glanmire and Douglas to Commercial solar panels in Carrigtwohill and Rochestown, and everything in between.

Why Go Solar?
Change isn’t always easy. If you’re unconvinced, here are some reasons you might want to go solar.
Effective and Efficient
Solar Panels Cork
As we touched on above, Ireland is not necessarily known for its sunny climate, but there is more than enough sunshine and daylight hours in southern Ireland for solar power to be effective. Placement is vital when installing a solar panel, with south facing being the optimum direction in our part of the world.
That being said, east and west facing panels will still get plenty of sunlight. The shape and orientation of your roof will determine the optimum arrangement for your system, but there will be an optimum arrangement that will ensure you get the most out of your system.
Solar Panels for Producing Heat
Heating is one of the most costly things we do on a day to day basis, from keeping our homes warm to heating water for a shower or bath. Even boiling a kettle uses a surprising amount of electricity. Using devices such as the i-Boost which enables you to automatically consume the excess energy generated from your PV Solar System which would normally flow back to the grid free of charge. We know this is the case with Solar Panels in Cork.
Water heating is one of the most common uses of solar power in Ireland, thanks in large part to its effectiveness and long-term cost savings over conventional methods.
Solar Panels for Producing Electricity
Solar Panels in Cork is a rapidly growing phenomenon for all the reasons we’ve mentioned—lower electricity bills, clean energy, it pays for itself. For roof space and a price that will eventually be paid back by the solar system’s savings, you do your bit for the environment and save money.
To make the most of your system, it would be prudent to ensure your building is running as efficiently as possible. We would optimise the system by monitoring when electricity is being used and installing batteries for storage.
Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland
Many countries are doing their bit to ease the burden on our planet, and Ireland is no exception. SEAI—the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland—has a grant scheme in place for houses built before 2011. This grant could see you receive help from SEAI to the tune of €900 per kW of solar panel installed, with additional funding for battery storage also available.
If you think you may be eligible for this kind of grant, we will be happy to talk you through the process when we discuss your solar PV Cork installation. More solar power benefits everybody, so don’t be afraid to claim your grant.
