Considering solar panel installation? Feeling overwhelmed by the multitude of options for both panels and installers across Scotland?

Rest assured, you’re not alone! With vast amounts of technical data and conflicting information online, the decision can be daunting.

Solar Panel Benefits in 2024

Solar panels and renewable energy hold significant promise for the future and represent a wise investment for your home in 2024. There has never been a better time to have them installed. Below are some of the key benefits you can expect:

Installing a 4kW system can lead to significant savings on your annual electricity bills, amounting to hundreds of pounds.

By no longer depending on the grid, you become less vulnerable to future price hikes.

You can also sell any surplus energy back to the grid at the current rate.

Switching to renewable energy helps protect the environment and reduces dependence on gas and other traditional fossil fuels.

The savings in energy costs from your solar panel system mean that it eventually pays for itself over time.

Solar PV Systems in Dundee

Solar PV, short for solar photovoltaic, refers to the conversion of light into electricity. Solar PV systems in Dundee are categorised into four primary classifications:

Monocrystalline solar PV systems are favoured for their high efficiency, which can reach up to 20% depending on factors like installation quality and climate. They’re especially suitable for roofs with limited space.

Polycrystalline solar PV systems are considered a legacy system in the solar industry. They were once the primary choice for new installations and remain widely used across the globe.

Despite their thinness, these solar PV systems are crafted from materials with high levels of light absorption, making them ideal for solar panel systems.

Hybrid PV systems direct the generated power to your inverter for immediate use in your home. Surplus energy is then stored in a home battery storage system, ensuring your system operates at maximum efficiency with no waste.

Best Solar Panels in Dundee

Before delving into the cost of installing solar panels, let’s first explore the most suitable panel options accessible in Dundee.

Monocrystalline panels feature a single large silicon crystal, which contributes to their higher initial cost but also exceptional efficiency. Opt for these if you aim for maximum yield from your solar panel investment.

Typically black, ideal for compact spaces with high electricity demands, they boast quality performance.

Comprising multiple small silicon crystals, these panels represent the initial generation of solar technology. While cost-effective to manufacture, they are not as advanced as hybrid or monocrystalline panels. Although less efficient than monocrystalline, they serve as the most economical choice.

These solar panels are blue and larger than the newer types, making them ineffective in small spaces.

Amorphous solar panel installations are gaining popularity due to their versatility. In this setup, solar panel installers layer multiple films atop each other, each reacting to specific light frequencies, collectively functioning akin to a solar panel.

These products offer the advantage of being more membrane-like than bulky panels, allowing for flexibility. The film can be applied over various surfaces such as glass, steel, or any suitable substrate, enabling diverse applications.

For instance, you could cover the entire roof without worrying about added weight. Alternatively, you could apply the film to windows or skylights if space is limited.

However, these products are less efficient compared to their counterparts, necessitating a greater quantity. Yet, they boast advantages like lower cost, high heat tolerance, and a low-profile design.

Hybrid solar panels amalgamate the advantageous traits of organic and inorganic semiconductors, boosting light absorption by the cells. This synergy renders them remarkably efficient, generating ample electricity, particularly suitable for compact areas.

Despite being the priciest alternative, these panels are optimal for Dundee’s climate owing to their heightened efficiency. Nonetheless, their novelty in the market demands investment in established brands to avoid potential reliability issues with lesser-known models.

Are Solar Panels Worth It in Dundee?

Many people wonder and search online whether solar panels are worth buying if you live in Dundee.

While your panels will perform better in the Australian outback, they can still generate energy and provide a return on investment in Dundee.

Dispelling the myth that solar panels are ineffective in Dundee comes down to partnering with experienced installers who install systems that ensure maximum returns. Factors such as the installation location, orientation, system size, and components like inverters and batteries are crucial considerations for optimal performance.

Do Solar Panels Work In Winter in Dundee?

The short answer is yes, your solar panels will still work during the winter in Dundee.

It goes without saying that solar panels operate at their peak during sunny days, but they can still generate energy even on overcast days as long as there’s daylight.

It’s common for people to associate solar energy with warmth, leading to confusion. However, solar panels rely on light, not heat, to produce electricity. So, even on cold and rainy days, sunlight can still be harnessed for energy generation.

Solar Panels Return On Investment

Investing in solar panels for your home is a wise decision, especially considering the current high energy costs in the UK. While solar panels typically result in reduced energy bills rather than profits, you may even earn money through surplus energy generation under the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme.

Ensuring you’re on the optimal tariff with your energy provider is crucial for maximising your savings, looking for the highest KwH (kilowatt hour) returns.

This particularly applies to homes with larger solar panel arrays or additional renewable energy systems like battery storage. When you sell excess energy back to the grid, you can earn credits, which can offset your electricity costs.

Cost Of Installing Solar Panels in Dundee

The average cost of installing solar panels in Dundee varies based on several factors:

  • Type of panels: Opting for budget options may require more panels, while higher-quality ones may cost more per panel.

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

  • Energy requirements: Smaller households need less energy compared to larger families.

  • Roof size: Limited roof space may necessitate more efficient, albeit pricier, options.

  • Future plans: Considering future needs, such as potential changes in household size or resale value, is essential.

Starting from around £6,500, solar panel installation represents a significant initial investment. However, the long-term savings on electricity bills and immunity to future rate hikes make it financially prudent. Moreover, surplus energy generation can potentially generate additional income.

Solar Panel Grants Dundee

During 2024 there is only funding available in Dundee 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.

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