But how much do solar panels cost?

There is no easy answer when it comes to how much solar panels cost to install.  Size however very much matters because the more energy you can generate from your solar panels, the quicker they will be paid off and the faster you can start becoming self reliant on producing your own electricity rather than relying on the national grid.

With an almost never ending thirst for more electrical gadgets and gizmos, the electrical strain on homes is growing by the day.  As more people switch to electric vehicles, the requirements for electricity are also increasing.  Which is why bigger is better when it comes to solar power.  The more solar panels you can have, the more you can save on your electricity.  But obviously, the more panels you have fitted, the higher the initial installation of solar panels cost will be.

Beyond quantity, type of solar panels is also very important.  Polycrystalline solar panels are the more affordable option but monocrystalline are more efficient at converting solar energy whilst also looking more attractive thanks to their black background.

When fitting solar panels, it doesn’t just come down to the solar panels you are fitting.  There are various accessories that come with solar panel installations. At Low Energy Services, we by default fit anti bird netting as standard – a lot of others don’t and it is an extra cost.  Other cost extras include solar compatible EV chargers, immersion diverters, solar battery storage systems and lots more.

Simply deciding on what type of solar panel you want (or need) and the various accessories that you want to have fitted for them means that the cost of solar panel installation does vary greatly.  One final thing than can affect the price of solar panels is the installation.  Does the roof need scaffolding for access?  Is the roof in a good enough condition for solar panels to be installed?
