Price of Solar Panels

The price of solar panels has dropped significantly in recent years. It is now cheaper than ever to get photovoltaic solar panels installed in your home. Even in the UK! In fact they will generate electricity almost every day of the year, even when cloudy. The only time when they do not work is when it snows because the clouds are extra thick.

The reason for the reduced cost is because there are more panels being produced in places like China. This means you can now enjoy free electricity at lower prices than ever. Of course the other benefit is that PV panels are environmentally friendly. It is our duty to be greener and reduce our carbon footprint and making use of the sun's energy is a great way to do this.

Solar panels prices can be found by clicking on the image above page. You will get quotes from up to 3 local installers in your area. Of course the installer will need to visit your home to give a final price. It is necessary to inspect your roof and the direction it is facing. Homes with south facing roofs might even be able to get solar panels for free!!!

Solar panels for free?

This is something that companies have been offering because they get to sell unused electricity back to the national grid. You get to use around 30% of what is generated forever (after 25 years you will own the panels) and in exchange they will supply and fit them for free. The UK government is expected to change the rates at which they buy back the electricity later this year but anyone who gets in now will still be able to get free electricity forever. It is certainly worth looking into, especially if you have a south facing roof. The installers we put you in contact with will be able to advise you better.

Then it comes to prices there really is no way of judging quickly. It will depend on the size and direction of the roof, number of people in the house and how much electricity you currently use. Expect to pay £5,000+ but it is best to get a proper quote so you know exactly how much it will cost. Also you will be given realistic estimates of how much you stand to save on your electricity bill. The initial cost is not cheap but photovoltaic panels are designed to last for 30 years.
