Solar panels and renewable energy have been hot topics over the last year or so. Particularly since the cost of living crisis, people are becoming more concerned by their energy bills increasing.
These increasing costs have in turn increased consumers awareness of exactly how much energy they are consuming and the effects it has on the environment.
Homeowners are looking for ways to be less reliant on the grid by producing their own energy with solar panels (PV) or heat pumps for their homes. In addition to the benefits of generating their own electricity, energy can also be stored and used during the evening with a battery. Flexible tariffs also give the option to charge batteries during cheap rate times and use this stored energy during the higher rate times.
One of the major considerations when buying solar panels is the overall cost, and the return on the investment.
Ultimately this comes down to a few factors:
- the amount of energy used
- the number of panels the roof could potentially hold
- type of roof
- whether battery storage is required
- whether an EV (electrical vehicle) is owned
A price should always be given after a site survey, to give an accurate quote based on the particular needs and usage.
As a rule of thumb and given the current rates of material & labour costs you could expect a basic system for as little as £8,000.
