Solar Panel Costs

The cost of solar power systems has come down in recent years as the technology improves & more manufacturers enter the market, so they are now the cheapest price they have ever been.

The cost of your solar power system will depend on serveral factors such as the size of your house & how much roof space will be used for solar panelling.

The cost for a typical house using a 14 panel system would be around £3,500 but we can provide you with an exact quote when you arrange a home survey.

Don’t forget, you can offset some of the cost of your solar panel system with the money you earn from selling the surplus electricity you generate, and your energy bills will be lower too!

Yes! The solar panels will generate your electricity during daylight hours, effectively giving you free electricity. Any surplus electricity generated will be fed back into the national grid & you will receive a payment for this.

The Feed In Tarrif (FIT) is a Government incentive scheme to encourage small scale, low-carbon electricity generation. You receive a payment for each unit of electricity you generate (whether you use it or not). Payments are made once a quarter & Saving Energy UK will help you with your application for FIT.

Solar PV Panels are an alternative energy source which converts sunlight into usable electricity. As long as your roof has no oversharing, is facing south east through to south west, and is ideally at a 30 degree angle, solar panels can convert energy even when overcast! As long as the sun is up, electricity will be created.
