Solar Panels – Reduce Your Energy Bills Drastically.
Why get Solar?
Living in the UK, you might question the efficiency of solar energy. However, let us assure you that even under the cloudy British skies, solar panels perform remarkably well. Furthermore, through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), you can get paid for the surplus energy your panels produce and send back to the grid. This means you’re not only saving on your monthly energy bills but also making a profit! In addition, by going solar, you’re actively contributing to combat climate change, reducing carbon emissions, and fostering a sustainable future. Unquestionably Solar PV is a long-term investment that rewards you with substantial savings, income through SEG, and a greener planet. So why wait? Harness the sun, save money, and protect the environment—make the bright choice for your home, wallet, and the planet.

Being the #1 Rated Solar Installer on Trustpilot speaks for itself!
The amount of money you will pay for a solar panel system is influenced by how large you’d like your system, whether or not you’d like a solar battery storage system, the make and model of your Solar Panels, Inverter and battery Storage, and how easy it is to access your roof, so it’s difficult to give an exact price as you may be able to spend more money to save more money in the long run.
In General, you could expect to pay around
- £3,000 – £5,000 for a 3kW system without solar battery storage
- £4,000 – £7,000 for a 4kW system without solar battery storage
- £5,000 – £8,000 for a 5kW system without solar battery storage
Most houses typically opt to add solar battery storage to their property to enable them to store the energy they make during the day and use it at night, so you rarely have to use energy from the national grid, however this will come at an additional cost. Additionally, with solar PV, you can choose the make and model of your battery; which one you pick will depend on the location it will be installed, the size of your property, how much energy you use, and your budget. Typically you can expect to pay between £1,500 – £8,000 for a solar battery.

Why you should get solar today rather than wait
Since rooftop solar panels have been installed in households, the price per watt of panels globally has dropped drastically. As with all technology, it improves over time and becomes cheaper to mass produce. However, with that being said, the price of solar has plateaued in recent years, suggesting now may be a great time to consider installing solar.
Additionally, the UK in April 2022 introduced 0% VAT on all solar installations, meaning the government essentially provides a 20% discount. This won’t be around forever; the government announced this will be up until 2027. This was to get closer to the Net Zero goal, and if we get close to that, it may end even sooner than 2027.
So there’s no time like the present to invest in solar or look at incentives available to yourself that enable you to get them installed for free or at a fraction of the cost.
Funding, Incentives & Grants available to homeowners around the UK that may be available to you
There are several funding options available to UK homeowners. Specifically, Solar Panel Funding provides three options, which include:
Entirely fully funded solar panels; to explain, this means qualifying households (subject to qualifying criteria being met) can have solar panels installed for completely free. This is different from free solar panel schemes from the past, as with SPF, you will completely own the panels, and any income and savings you generate will be entirely yours to keep.
Another option is to use one of the Solar Panel Funding finance offers; we work with a panel of installers that have varying ways to spread to cost over a period of time that suits you and will be in line with your level of savings & earnings.
Finally, you can purchase solar panels outright, but with Solar Panel Funding’s help, we deal with the UK’s top installation companies and regularly assess them on their customer satisfaction, price and quality of work.
