How much does solar cost?

Solar panels usually cost around £1,600-2,150 per kWp installed, depending on roof access costs, roof covering and pitch. A standard domestic 4kWp system will cost around £6,500.

As 4kWp saves up to £1000 per year on energy bills, the payback time is around 8 years. The panels will last 25 years or so (with one inverter replacement). The return over 25 years is usually in the order of 9.75% (IRR%). This is non-taxable, so compares very favourably to any other investment, especially one that depends only on the sun coming out.

The grid cost is 22.36p+ per unit for the typical homeowner, and rising... and rising… Including maintenance costs, the unsubsidised cost per kWh of solar energy is only 9p. Now that's something to shout about!

Boost your usage with batteries

If you are installing solar PV, we strongly recommend you consider battery storage at the same time.

With home batteries, you can store your excess solar energy to use when the sun goes down - or in a power cut. With smart tariffs, you can save even more by buying cheap off-peak electricity and selling when demand is high.
