Residential Solar Panels Installed in Edinburgh

In the above showcased installation, our partner installers provided and installed 20 solar panels along with a Growatt battery storage system (situated in the loft). This PV system stands as a prime example of efficiency and high output, benefitting from an ideal roof angle to yield the highest possible returns. With each panel boasting an output of 430 watts, the system is projected to generate 8.6 kW annually. The combination of high output, roof angle, minimal shading, and battery storage ensures that the homeowner will optimise their investment returns.

During your home survey, we allocate the necessary time and attention to tailor bespoke systems for your specific needs, mirroring the approach taken in this exemplary installation.

Why Install Solar Panels in 2024?

Solar panels and other renewable energy sources hold significant promise for the future and represent a wise investment for your home in 2024. There has never been a more opportune moment to have them installed. Here are some of the primary benefits you can anticipate:

Installing a 4kW system can result in yearly savings of hundreds of pounds on increasing electricity expenses.

Generating your own electricity reduces reliance on external energy sources and protects you from price fluctuations.

By disconnecting from the grid, you enhance your resilience to potential future price increases.

You also have the opportunity to sell any surplus energy back to the grid at current rates.

Shifting to renewable energy contributes to environmental conservation and diminishes reliance on conventional fossil fuels such as gas.

Over time, the energy cost savings from your solar panel system will compensate for its initial expense.

Properties outfitted with solar panels frequently fetch higher resale values due to their decreased energy costs and environmentally friendly allure.

Solar power contributes to diversifying the energy mix, thereby enhancing energy security and resilience against power outages, which is especially valuable for residents in rural areas of Edinburgh and the Lothian region.

In summary, installing solar panels offers both financial and environmental benefits, making it a wise investment for homeowners.

Home Solar PV Systems

Solar photovoltaic (PV) refers to the process of converting light into electricity. Solar PV systems commonly installed in homes in Edinburgh and Lothian typically fall into four main categories:

Monocrystalline solar PV systems are favoured for their high efficiency, reaching rates of up to 20% depending on installation quality, climate, and other factors. They are especially suitable for roofs with limited space.

Polycrystalline solar PV systems are regarded as a conventional option in the solar industry. Although they were previously the predominant choice for new installations, they continue to be widely utilised globally.

These solar PV systems utilise thin panels made from materials with high light absorption, making them well-suited for solar panel systems despite their slender profile.

Hybrid PV systems channel the generated power to your inverter for immediate use as electricity in your home. Any excess energy is stored in a home battery storage system, allowing for its utilisation at a later time. This ensures maximum efficiency of the system while minimising waste.

We provide installation services for various solar panels and PV systems.

Best Solar Panels Edinburgh

Before delving into the cost of installing solar panels, let’s examine the top panel options available in Edinburgh and Lothian.

Monocrystalline solar panels are crafted from a single, large silicon crystal rather than smaller chips. While they may entail a higher initial cost, they offer exceptional efficiency, ideal for maximising the return on your solar panel investment.

Typically black in colour, these panels are also available in various shades. They excel in situations where space is limited but substantial electricity output is required.

Constructed from multiple small silicon crystals, these panels represent the initial generation of solar panel technology. Despite their cost-effectiveness in manufacturing, they trail behind hybrid or monocrystalline panels in terms of technological advancement. While less efficient than monocrystalline panels, they serve as the most economical option.

Usually exhibiting a blue tint and larger dimensions compared to newer variants, they may be less suited for smaller spaces.

Amorphous solar panel installation is gaining popularity due to its versatility. These panels are composed of multiple layers of film stacked on top of each other, with each layer responding to specific light frequencies, collectively functioning as a solar panel.

One advantage of these products is their membrane-like structure, which is more flexible than traditional bulky panels. They can be applied to various substrates like glass, steel, or other suitable materials, allowing for diverse applications.

For instance, you could cover an entire roof without worrying about added weight. Alternatively, you could potentially apply the film to a window or skylight if it’s the only available space.

However, these products are less efficient than their counterparts, requiring more panels for adequate energy production. Nonetheless, they are cost-effective, heat resistant, and have a low profile.

Hybrid solar panels merge the advantages of organic and inorganic semiconductors, enhancing their light absorption capability. This leads to heightened efficiency, significant electricity production, and adaptability for constrained spaces.

Despite being the priciest option, hybrid panels stand out as the ideal selection for Edinburgh’s climate owing to their superior efficiency. Nonetheless, the novelty of this technology implies either investing in established brands at premium prices or taking a chance on lesser-known models with uncertain reliability.

In your first consultation, we'll delve into the best solar panel options customised to meet your home's unique requirements.

Solar Panels Cost Edinburgh

The cost of solar panels in Edinburgh is influenced by various factors:

Make of panel: Lower-cost and output panels require more space, while premium ones are priced higher per panel and take up less space on your roof.

Size of the PV system: Smaller systems may suffice for backup purposes, whereas larger households may require more extensive setups.

Your energy requirements: Energy consumption varies among households, with larger families needing more energy.

Roof size: Limited roof space may necessitate more efficient, albeit more expensive panels.

Future plans: Consider potential changes in household size and energy needs. Solar installation costs in Edinburgh typically start at around £6,500, though smaller PV systems can begin from as little as £4,000.

Despite the initial investment, long-term savings on electricity bills and protection against future rate increases make solar panel installation a worthwhile investment. Moreover, surplus energy can potentially generate additional income if your panels produce more electricity than you consume.

Solar Battery Storage Grants

During 2024 there is only funding available in Edinburgh for people buying both solar panels AND other renewables such as high heat retention storage heaters or an air source heat pump.

You can also qualify for a grant for one of these products on their own, if you already have one of them installed.

All funding is available via Home Energy Scotland.

Grants are awarded up to £9,000 with additional interest free loans also available.
