Solar Panel Cost in the UK

A growing number of the UK population are considering switching to the new options presented by solar panels and solar  battery systems. A considerable number of families and individuals have already utilised the advancements in storing solar energy in their homes. There are a range of economic and environmental benefits of solar energy, especially when utilising a solar panel battery system alongside your solar panels.

Anyone can benefit from this new method of solar energy storage; it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been using solar panels before, or are exploring the technology for the first time. Understandably, your key questions are likely to be:

– how much do solar panels cost in the UK?

– how much do solar panel battery systems cost?

– do you really save money with solar panels?

– how long will it take for solar panels to pay for themselves?

Whether you’re a first-time buyer, new parents, or approaching retirement, the installation of a solar panel and battery combination could be an ideal fit for any homeowner, especially with the lowering of the average solar panel cost.

For anyone across the UK looking to explore how they can enjoy the benefits of a solar panel battery system, Moixa is available to help. You get to enjoy solar energy both day and night thanks to our highly capable solar panel and Moixa battery systems. Our systems can transform the solar energy taken in by your solar panels into power that you can store and use through the day and night, immediately beginning to pay back the solar panel cost.

Extending the Power of Solar

Most people are pretty familiar with some of the common everyday uses of solar power, having heard of it for quite some time now. There are numerous gadgets operating on solar power, items such as watches, calculators and even garden lights. What some people are unaware of is that there is now an even smarter way to tap into the capabilities of solar energy, building on the benefits of using solar panels to power a home by adding a solar panel battery system.

A solar panel battery system will allow you to store energy, which you can then use to power your home at a later time, just when you need it, adding a great deal further benefit to the energy potential of having solar panels on your roof.

What is even more impressive about the system is that you can also gain income for any energy you generate (under current Feed-In Tariff provisions) as well as an annual income (and extended warranty) through Moixa’s GridShare initiative, with this additional income making your solar panel cost an even more manageable proposition.

What you really need to know about solar batteries

In terms of the key features of Moixa’s solar panel battery systems, some of the key benefits include:

  • You can use the solar panel battery system together with your existing solar panels
  • Allows you to use stored solar energy in the evening, or even charge overnight if you have a lower Economy 7 rate
  • You will enjoy significantly reduced energy bills (see ‘how much can you save’ section)
  • The battery in the system is a small single unit (50×30×20cm) that fits anywhere, from a garage, to under the stairs, to a living room

24/7 Solar Potential

As you consider the key questions around how much do solar panel battery systems cost, it is important to understand the key workings and primary benefits of our system. As mentioned, you get access to solar energy to use during the day and also store it to power your home in the evening, and impressively, through the night. As the solar panels on your roof take in solar energy, your Moixa Smart Battery will store it wherever in the house you have placed your unit.

Additionally, with the Moixa Dashboard you will be able to see a detailed breakdown of your energy usage, gaining insight on how to power your home in the most efficient way. Such a revolutionary upgrade provides environmental and economic satisfaction, with Moixa’s solar panels and batteries offering the leading option in the UK. You will have a more environmentally friendly way of powering your home, lower energy bills and enjoy a more flexible solar energy option.

Solar innovation at work

You might wonder how it works, or how you get to use energy generated by solar panels through the night. The innovative solar panel battery system allows you to use solar power as it is generated during the day, as with regular solar panels. Any excess energy generated, which you are not using currently, will then charge a Moixa Smart Battery accompanying the system. This is the energy you get to use overnight, rather than having it go to waste without this storage potential.

You can select either the 2kWp, 3kWp or 4kWp system to determine the amount of energy to be generated and stored. Rough estimates show that you can take in and store the solar energy equivalent to that required to boil between 43 and 83 kettle boils per day (around 1,880 hours per year) with the Moixa’s solar panel battery systems.

Of course, a key consideration for many homeowners will be in regards to the initial solar panel cost or the expenses of the solar battery system as a whole and whether it justifies the long-term economic and environmental benefits. In terms of how much do solar panels cost in the UK, it is hard to give an exact detail of the cost here in terms of a solar panel battery system for your specific home, since there are a number of factors to consider.

For instance, the ideal kWp system for your requirements, as well as whether or not you possess solar panels already. For most people, the initial cost of the installation of the system is a very reasonable investment considering the ongoing savings it brings.
