We also asked “Any other thoughts on retrofitting or making your home more energy-efficient? Comments from parents included:

“I’m currently exploring the costs and grants available to install solar panels. The latest electricity bill gave me one hell of a shock!!!!”

“Very hard to see what grants are available and then feels like you have to shell out thousands to reclaim. Doesn’t seem affordable to the average house.”

“Our home is only 3 years old, but we would love to install solar panels with a battery, depending on cost. Also, interested in installing a home car charger for the future, if we purchase an EV, again depending on cost. At the moment, the cost is prohibitive unfortunately.”

“I have availed of SEAI grants to improve heating and insulation but the financial supports for solar pv panels aren’t substantial enough for me to make that move even though my house is perfectly positioned for it.

“Think there should be more grants to assist home owners to become more energy efficient.”
