Some key solar battery questions are covered in these guides:
How do solar panels impact on savings?
We understand why the question of do solar panels increase the value of your home in the UK is so important to many of our customers, so we seek to answer this in the fullest possible way. To understand how solar panels can impact on the value of a house, we must look at it from a few different angles.
The first major reason that the value of your home will increase due to the installation of solar panels is in how much they will save you in energy costs. Over the last few years, energy bills have continued to rise, and there is no sign that this is going to slow down any time soon.
Through solar panels being installed at your home, you will see an average saving of up to 50% on energy bills. Depending on the type and size of system you choose from Moixa, including your ideal Moixa Smart Battery option, you can expect average savings could be between £425 and £680. This is an attractive option to a prospective buyer.
How do solar panels affect houses prices?
The presence of solar panels and a solar battery can be very enticing to prospective buyers when it comes time to sell your home. Not only do solar panels offer lower energy bills for a property, but they are also extremely easy to look after. Maintenance costs are extremely low, and they will only have to be cleaned once (maybe twice) a year if a professional team properly installs them.
Solar panel installation can also help increase your property value by helping to raise the grade of the EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) linked to it. Every single house in the UK has to have a valid EPC, with grades ranging from the highest (A) to the lowest (G). Solar panel installation can improve a rating by as much as 2-grades, which in turn can add real monetary value to a property.
Why buy a solar battery?

Selling a home with solar panels
Another area which has a major impact on the question of do solar panels increase the value of your home in the UK is with regards to selling your home in the most effective possible way. If you wish to sell your home, and you have paid for solar panel installation in the past few years there are a few tips you should consider. The level of benefit to selling a home with solar panels will depend somewhat on the age of those solar panels.
Additionally, all Moixa Smart Battery customers have the option of joining GridShare Membership. This gives them access to a free extended Smart Battery warranty and also allows Moixa to group all of the members’ solar batteries together to create a Virtual Power Plant.
GridShare Membership is our way of using solar battery capacity to support a low-carbon, renewable energy powered future and enables us to support the grid with spare electricity or battery capacity.
Households who sign up to GridShare Membership receive £50 every year for the first three years. Moixa also measures and reports on the impact of a smart battery device being used for Grid Services and provides additional reimbursement for any savings lost.
There is also the benefit that solar energy storage can add to your Home Energy Performance rating, which can be a real positive when it comes to assessing the value of your home to a potential buyer.
So, when it comes to a definitive answer on ‘do solar panels increase home value (in the UK)? ‘ it is difficult to say for sure in your exact case, but there are certainly plenty of factors that indicate that many potential buyers would be attracted by the idea of an in-built renewable energy source that saves them money, and may be willing to pay more for the property because of it.
