The deadline for applications for support from the SERVE project for improving the energy efficiency of your home and business has passed.  Thanks to everyone who applied.  The project has been significantly oversubscribed and North Tipperary County Council are now reviewing applications in light of budgets available and will be in contact with people soon.

SERVE Applications Close for Residential and Non Residential

The deadline for applications to the SERVE project for support under the Residential and Non-Residential support schemes has now passed.  All indications are that the targets set for engagement in the project have been reached.  North Tipperary County Council and Tipperary Energy Agency are reviewing the applications and will be finalising all contracts with applications in the coming weeks.

Funding is still available for support under the Micro Generation support scheme.  Contact 067 44671 for more information.

SERVE Micro-generation scheme open

The SERVE microgeneration scheme is open for building owners in the SERVE area who wish to install solar photovoltaic panels or micro-wind turbines in the area. The scheme is modest, looking to support a total of 20kW of installations with a grant level of €1922 per installed peak kilowatt.

Microgeneration is defined in this case as single phase systems up to 6kW (25 Amps) or 16 Amps per phase 3 phase. The grant closing date is the 27th of May 2011 and applications will be taken on a first come first SERVEd basis subject to meeting the application requirements.

There is significant detail about the scheme in the SERVE Project Micro-Generation Scheme Information Guide. All applications will require a feasibility study to be completed at time of application, to ensure the installation will provide the building owner with value for money, this Micro-Generation Feasibilty Studyy is relatively short and can be completed by your installer or a suitably qualified engineer. Applicants should start with finding the appropriate technology solution and fill in the  SERVE Project Micro-Generation Grant Scheme Application Form. Any queries to North Tipperary County council on 067 44671
