It is with great pleasure that we would like to endorse Future Generation Solar to you.
We had had such success with our 5 hot water panels that we decided that we should go for a PV system as well.
Liam Deasy and his team were extremely professional throughout the process – from when we were considering the PV system right through to installation and gave us great advice. We put up 17 Panels in total, 12 on an annex roof and five either side of our existing panels. We also went for the Solar Edge wifi app, so we can see the amount of electricity we are generating, even down to which panels are working the most effectively.
Future Generation were some of the cleanest builders we have ever used even hovering up after themselves in the house and there was no mess left outside at all. It is this attention to detail that permeates through all their work.
We used the Revenue’s HRI scheme to get the VAT back over 2 years post installation. With intelligent use of appliances, we are saving about 1/3 off of our electricity bills. The only drawback at present is that we are still unable to sell the surplus electricity we produce back to the grid. This would greatly reduce the payback time. We are also hoping that the cost of storing the surplus will come down to a level that at least this would be viable and therefore reduce the payback time.
We contacted Future Generation Energy in 2016. We had found we were burning large amounts of oil to fuel underfloor heating, radiators and hot water for our household needs in our middle-sized Georgian house. While we wished to cut costs and improve the thermal performance of our home, we wanted there to be minimal invasiveness to the integrity of the house. We also had to bear in mind our proximity to the sea, to ensure that corrosion by salt air could be avoided.
During their site and property assessment, Future Generation Energy’s design team discussed our options, given the above constraints. We opted for the Thermodynamic Heat Pump System as the best fit.
For minimal visual impact, Future Generation Energy installed the Panels on the roof of the boiler room, and the new Heat Pump was connected to our existing heating system. We now have a much improved and sustainable system for heating our house and providing our hot water. And we also find that the air quality is so much better, making for a much more comfortable home all round.
We have no hesitation in recommending the professionalism and competence of Future Generation Energy to potential customers.

Air to Water Underfloor Heating(Heat Pumps Domestic)
From the outset Future Generation Energy were a pleasure to deal with. As we were going down the self build route and not going through a contractor, trust was of most importance to us for our new home.
Future Generation Energy met us prior to commencement, and talked through all the options available to us, taking into consideration house size, room size, house orientation, personal preferences and budget.
We decided to go with an air to water heat pump. The installation was done very methodically and Future Generation Energy were always there on the exact date stated, to complete each step of the installation process.
We moved into the house in June 2017 and the heating has been superb. We choose a high specification system with a control panel in every room in the house. This allows each room to be set to a different temperature, to suit the individual needs of every occupant. This system is ideal for couples/families that like ourselves, have vastly contrasting definitions of hot and cold. We have the rooms we use daily set to 19-20 degrees, and the rooms not in use to 18 degrees. If we are having a friend or family member stay, we can set the temperature of their bedroom to their liking.
Future Generation Energy were always on hand to answer any query we had, and to help us understand the dynamics of the new sophisticated system that they were installing in our house. We would highly recommend Future Generation Energy to other houseowners.
It is now our only source of hot water
We had our thermodynamic hot water system installed by Future Generation Energy in October 2011. This system has worked a treat for us since installation. It is now our only source of hot water in our house and gives us constant hot water 24/7.We are a family of 2 Adults and 3 children and this system supplies us with all the hot water we need. I would highly recommend Liam and this system to anyone who is looking at installing a solar hot water system.
How cheap the system is to run considering we have 300 litres of hot water
To say how pleased we are with the thermodynamic hot water system. We have hot water 24-7 which with a new born baby in the house is a god send we could not be more pleased with the system and could not recommend it highly enough. You and your team were a pleasure to deal with and did a 1st class job, I still can’t believe how cheap the system is to run considering we’ve 300 liters of hot water. If you have any new clients inquiring about your system, by all means, pass on my number to them.A truly great investment in any house.
Domestic Solar PV
We are absolutely delighted with the PV system installed by Future Generation Energy Ltd into our B&B in 2016. We have 3 large bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities and free wi-fi. The past couple of years have been busy ones for us. Thankfully, producing our own electricity has led to a significant reduction in our electricity bill. We are also pleased to be playing our part in looking after the environment.
Always a great shower with hot water available
We had our system installed around a year ago and so we have experienced it through all seasons and have been extremely impressed with it.
One of the requirements my wife wanted when we moved into a new house was a great shower and with hot water from the Future Generations Energy system there is always a great shower available. The system provides us with hot water morning,noon and night. No need for sunshine or even daylight. We have a 280 litre tank and have managed to have a bath for 2 kids and showers at high pressure/flow for 3 adults without running out of hot water.
The hot water has been there whenever we have needed it, through all seasons, and our electricity bills haven’t changed through the changes in weather from summer to winter.
I would recommend this system to anyone who wants something that just works and gives you low and predictable electricity use.
