Solar Panel Prices

Save £1,000s by comparing quotes from the UK’s leading Solar Installers

One of the questions here at Compare Best Quotes we get asked the most is how much does a solar system cost? This is of course is a totally understandable question but it will come as no surprise that there is no simple answer just as if you ask how much is a car.

  • Generally a small 1Kw system will cost you in the region of £4,000
  • A maximum 4Kw home system will cost around £6,000
  • Due to fixed costs the larger a system you have then the quicker you will get your initial investment back.
  • In most cases you will get the cost of your system back within 8-10 years leaving you the remainder of the 20 years to reap the rewards.

Common Factors Affecting Solar System Prices

The exact cost of a solar panel system for your home even when you know what size of system you want to fit still can vary depending on other factors. These can be things like:

  • How easy is it to access your roof, will scaffolding be required?
  • Does your roof suffer from shading during the day?
  • What is the most productive combination of solar panels and inverter(s) for you?

All of these questions need to be answered before you can get a final price.

To get a final price for your home solar panel system you will need to have your house's roof surveyed. Use our service and we will put you in touch with MCS accredited companies who will give you a FREE home survey!

Compare More Than Just Price!

Ultimately the price of a system should not be the most important factor when choosing the right solar panel system for your home. Using a company that designs you a bespoke system using the very clever software available could mean you pay slightly more initially. However, the benefit is the software designs everything to get the most out of your system all year around. This should mean you get significantly more money back through the feed-in tariff over 20 years.
