Case Study - Aras Na Gaeilge NUIG

Aras Na Gaeilge NUIG - Galway

This split east-west system on a Fronious Symo 20 string inverter took one and half days for the roof installation and two and half days for electrical connection. NUIG were nominated for a LAMA award from the addition of 2 solar arrays fitted on the campus last year. PV Generation designed, certified and commissioned each system. Through our involvement in Better Energy Community schemes, we were able to secure SEAI grants for each of the installations. We continue to work closely with NUIG in taking the next steps towards making it a greener and more sustainable university. An EV charger network and additional Solar arrays will be rolled out on campus over the coming years.
