What Are Solar PV Panels?

PV panels, also known as photovoltaic panels, are used to help generate electricity for both domestic and commercial properties. They have grown in popularity in the last few years, and look likely to continue to do so, due to rising energy bills and lower installation costs.

Photovoltaic (PV) cells are used in solar PV panels to convert electricity from sunlight – even when the weather is cloudy. Electricity from PV solar panels is used to power electrical appliances such as cookers, TVs, lights, computers, and more.

Solar power provides a renewable source of energy and is also beneficial to the environment by lowering carbon emissions that is a concern globally.

The Rise Of Solar PV Panels

There’s been a lot of change in the solar PV panel market lately – and there’s more change to come. It’s a great financial and social investment, offering homeowners the chance to save and to contribute towards the creation of a cleaner planet for future generations as well as helping households now with lower energy bills.

PV solar panels have been installed onto the roofs of over 700,000 homes in the last ten years. Up and down the whole of the UK, even in areas not traditionally associated with year-around sunshine, properties benefit from permanently lower electricity bills and the planet also benefits by a major reduction in the UK’s domestic greenhouse gas emissions.

The Upfront Solar PV Panel Cost Against The Long Term Investment

PV panels are much cheaper now than when they were first introduced to the public, and this makes them more accessible to more people than ever before. In time, they will pay back that initial cost through lower energy bills – and this is only going to happen faster because of how high electricity bills are becoming.

Changes To The Value Of PV Panels

Much of the growth in popularity of solar PV panels was credited to the launch of the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) scheme in 2010, which paid homeowners an inflation-adjusted amount tax-free based upon the amount of electricity they both generated and sold back to the National Grid through their PV solar panels. That scheme was permanently closed in March 2019, leaving many homeowners who had seriously considered the idea of installing solar PV panels on their properties wondering whether they had left it too late.

Luckily, the solar panels market is ever-changing and a new scheme, the Smart Exchange Guarantee, was created. It is a new way to earn back money on excess electricity generated – although another option is to look at installing solar batteries with your photovoltaic panels.

Rising energy bills and lower purchase and installation costs make PV panels a worthwhile investment for your home.

What Are The Main Benefits Of Installing Solar PV Panels?

PV panels are great for environmentally-conscious homeowners

For over 40 years, the governments of the world have become increasingly alarmed by the impact of mankind on the environment. Solar PV panels in particular benefitted from heavy investment in their development from both the public and private sector because of their proven ability to produce sustainable and cheap energy, which would contribute, if installed in great enough numbers, to the fall in greenhouse gas emissions created by homeowners.

A long-term investment with annual returns

PV Solar panel installations last for an impressive 20-25 years before the underlying technology within a system starts to become inefficient. Over that time, homeowners gain from a sizable fall in the amount of money they’re spending on electricity bills. Bill by bill, they pay off their initial investment in this clean technology.

The level of maintenance and after-care required on installed solar PV panels is minimal too – very handy considering that they’re installed on roofs.

Solar PV panels are more efficient than they’ve ever been

The level of innovation in PV solar panel technology has been substantial, and this has led to PV panels which are now very efficient and produce more electricity from the same amount of exposure to UV rays than before.

How Much Do PV Solar Panels Cost?

Installing PV solar panels onto your roof costs between £2,750 and £8,350, including VAT. but installation and scaffolding costs also need to be factored in. Many installers are licensed credit brokers registered with the Financial Conduct Authority, which means that you have the option of spreading the cost of the installation over a period of time. Make sure you ask your PV panel installer if there are any special finance deals on as an incentive, such as deferred initial payment plans and interest-free loans.

The number of panels you need and their efficiency are the two main factors in determining what you’ll need to budget for your solar PV panel installation. The more PV panels and the higher the energy efficiency rating, the more you should budget, but the better performance you can expect.

The number of PV panels on your roof determines the amount of electricity generated by your solar PV panels. Each PV solar panel costs between £375 and £550 and takes up around 4 square metres in space. Each PV solar panel generates between 400 and 450 kWh of electricity per hour.
