Are solar panels worth it in the UK?  Yes, and with a Moixa Smart Battery, you can unlock the full potential of solar energy. By installing solar panels, you are able to generate your own renewable energy during the day, but unfortunately without battery storage, if you generate more energy than you can consume this excess is sent back to the grid.

Therefore, when you combine solar panels with battery storage you are able to use more of the energy that you generate, reducing your reliance on energy providers and cutting down your bills. With solar panels and a Smart solar battery, Moixa has helped over 1,000 households reduce their carbon footprint and lower their energy bills.


Some key solar battery questions are covered in these guides:

What benefits do solar panels offer?

Moixa Smart Battery

Is it worth buying solar panels? We would highly recommend them, with a wide range of benefits attached to those homes where solar panels have been installed. Solar panels work by being installed on the roof of a property, absorbing direct sunlight and utilising the PV cells present in the panels to convert it into electricity. This electricity can be used to power single appliances, lights, equipment in the garden or the garage, or even the entire home for a time if solar energy generation is high enough.

If you are wondering, ‘are solar panels worth it in the UK’, then Moixa creates solar and storage systems with the UK market in mind. We take into account your household’s energy usage, location and lifestyle before suggesting a right-sized system to suit your needs. Did you know? When you buy solar panels through Moixa they come with a 25-year output performance warranty.

Is it worth adding solar battery storage?

When we are asked the question, ‘are solar panels worth it in the UK’, depending on the house location and customer’s lifestyle, our answer is generally yes, especially when you add battery storage. One of the key reasons we believe solar panels are worth it in the UK is because they can be matched with a Moixa Smart Battery, unlocking the potential of solar energy.

Your solar panels will generate energy during the day but if you aren’t at home to use it, this will be sent to the grid. However, if you install a Moixa Smart Battery, it can be charged with this excess energy instead of sending it all to the grid.

On top of the battery charging from solar panels, it can also be charged at night when energy is cheap, for example, if you have a ‘time of use’ tariff. This allows you to power your home from cheap energy if your household starts to use electricity before the solar panels start to generate energy.

By adding battery storage, it gives your household more flexibility, as you can utilise solar energy in your home both day and night. You can also use your Moixa Dashboard to view your real-time and historical energy usage so you can change your habits in order to use more solar energy to help reduce your reliance on traditional energy providers.

If you are interested, you can also sign up to a GridShare Membership which gives you access to a free extended warranty for as long as you are a part of it and allows you to earn additional income.
