Solar panel systems for your property starts at around £1,500 for a smaller system. The most advanced systems using the latest technology fitted to larger residential roofs may cost from £8,000 upwards. Although it’s still expensive, you would have had to pay at least double those prices as little as five or six years ago.
The cost of solar panels for homes has fallen for many consecutive years. Through a combination of massive government and private investment, increasing worldwide demand from consumers, and intense competition between manufacturers, homeowners keen to save money on their electricity bills and to help the environment have benefited greatly from the steep falls in price since 2010.
