Solar PV & Battery Storage Systems

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are highly effective green energy systems that allow properties to harness the natural power of the sun and turn it into clean, renewable energy that can then be used to power your home in a far more cost-effective and eco-friendly way.

Solar PV systems are a fantastic investment that can help you save money on your energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner, greener future.

Solar battery storage systems to minimise your energy costs

In addition to the solar panels, your Perth City Electric engineer will also install solar battery storage. 

Solar battery storage is essentially a storage system for the energy that is harnessed during daylight hours. Homeowners can then use the stored power to run their electrical appliances at night.

This allows solar panel owners to maximise the energy taken from sun and in turn, minimise their use of standard electricity and energy that needs to be purchased through their energy supplier. 

Energy can be stored for days, weeks or months, meaning you can continually use the clean energy produced from your solar PV system even in the depth of winter, where areas in the UK, and particularly in Scotland, see very little daylight. Solar batter storage is a key element of the solar PV system and comes as standard with every solar system we install. 

The benefits of installing solar panels in the UK

Having a professionally installed solar PV system on your domestic or commercial property provides a wide range of benefits. As well as contributing to a greener way of life and helping UK home owners deal with the rising cost of energy, solar panels can also add value to your home if you are considering moving in the future.

The main benefits of installing solar panels in UK homes include:

  • Reduce cost of energy bills: The green energy produce by solar panels will help reduce the amount of energy you need to buy from your supplier, leading to significant savings on your energy bills.
  • Increased home value: Solar panels make your property more attractive to potential buyers and can help raise the selling price.
  • Low maintenance: Solar panels have very low maintenance costs, are easy to care for and have a long lifespan.
  • Environmental benefits: As solar panels are a completely clean and renewable source of energy; they do not contribute to Co2 emissions. If every home had solar panels, we would take a huge step towards battling climate change.
  • Potential to earn money: If you generate more electricity than you need, you can sell the excess back to the grid and earn money through the UK's Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme.
  • Increased energy independence: By generating your own electricity, you can reduce your dependence on the grid and potentially become less vulnerable to power outages and price rises.

What is the cost of installing solar panels in the UK?

Although the upfront cost of installing solar panels can be high, they offer long-term savings which are particularly valuable in the current economic climate due to the rising costs of energy and the uncertainty Europe faces over energy supplies. 

On average, the cost of a solar panel system in the UK can range from £4,000 to £14,000 depending on several factors, such as; the size of the system and the type of panels used.

In addition, there are multiple UK government schemes that are being rolled out both now and in the coming months and years that aim to help offset the cost of installing solar panels for homes and businesses. These schemes can help home owners afford the initial cost of installing solar panels through loans, incentives and offers. 

Furthermore, the UK government announced in March 2022 that the VAT for solar panels has gone down to 0% for a 5-year period, which further helps to cut costs for those interested in installing a solar PV system in Scotland.
