For the job pictured above, our partner installers supplied and fitted 20 solar panels and a battery storage system (in the loft). This PV system is a perfect example of an efficient high output system, with a near perfect roof angle to provide the best possible returns. Each panel has an output of 430 watts, meaning the system has an expected return of 8.6 Kw over the course of a year. The high output, roof angle, lack of shade and battery storage system, will ensure this homeowner see’s maximum returns on their investment.

Benefits of Installing Solar Panels in 2024

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

By installing a 4kW system, you can save hundreds of pounds annually on increasing electricity expenses.

By producing your own electricity, you become less reliant on external energy sources and price fluctuations.

By no longer relying on the grid, you become more resilient to future price hikes.

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

Switching to renewable energy helps the environment and decreases reliance on gas and other conventional fossil fuels.

The energy cost savings from your solar panel system ultimately cover its initial expense over time.

Homes with solar panels tend to have higher resale values due to reduced energy costs and environmental appeal.

Solar power diversifies the energy mix, enhancing energy security and resilience against power outages, especially important if you live in rural parts of Aberdeenshire.

Types of Solar PV System

Solar PV stands for solar photovoltaic, which refers to the process of converting light into electricity. Solar PV systems available in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are typically categorised into one of four primary classifications:

Monocrystalline solar PV systems are favoured for their high efficiency, reaching rates of up to 20% depending on installation quality, climate, and other factors.

These panels are ideal for roofs with limited space.

Polycrystalline solar PV systems are considered a legacy system in the solar industry. These panels and systems were initially the top choice for new installations and are still widely used worldwide.

These solar PV systems utilise thin panels made from materials with high light absorption levels, making them ideal for solar panel systems despite their thinness.

Hybrid PV systems channel the generated power to your inverter for immediate use as electricity in your home. Any surplus energy is stored in a home battery storage system, allowing it to be utilised at a later time. This ensures maximum efficiency of the system with minimal waste.

Best Solar Panels Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire

Before delving into the cost of solar panel installation, let’s examine the top panel options available in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

Monocrystalline solar panels are crafted from a single large silicon crystal instead of smaller chips. While they may have a higher initial cost, they offer exceptional efficiency, making them ideal if you’re aiming for maximum yield from your solar panel investment.

These panels typically feature a black colour but are available in various colours. They are well suited for small spaces that require significant electricity output.

Composed of numerous small silicon crystals, these panels represent the first generation of solar panel technology. While they are affordable to manufacture, they are not as advanced as hybrid or monocrystalline panels. Although less efficient than monocrystalline panels, they are the most budget-friendly option available.

These solar panels typically have a blue hue and are larger in size compared to newer types, making them less suitable for smaller spaces.

Amorphous solar panel installation is gaining popularity due to its versatility. Installers layer multiple films atop one another, each reacting to specific light frequencies, functioning collectively as a solar panel.

These products resemble a membrane rather than a bulky panel, offering flexibility. You can apply the film onto various substrates like glass, steel, or other suitable materials, allowing for diverse applications.

For instance, you could cover an entire roof without concerns about additional 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, necessitating more of them for adequate energy production. Nonetheless, they are cost-effective, heat-resistant, and have a low profile.

Hybrid solar panels merge the advantageous features of organic and inorganic semiconductors, enhancing their light absorption capacity. As a result, they exhibit high efficiency, generate substantial electricity output, and are well-suited for compact areas.

Although they are the priciest option, hybrid panels stand out as the optimal selection for Aberdeen’s climate, thanks to their superior efficiency. However, the novelty of this technology entails paying premium prices from established brands or risking the reliability of less established models.

Solar Panels Aberdeen Cost

The price of solar panels in Aberdeen hinges on several factors:

Type: Budget options may require more panels, while higher-quality ones cost more per panel.

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

Your energy needs: Individual energy consumption varies; larger families require more energy.

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

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

Despite being a substantial investment, the long-term savings on electricity bills and protection against future rate hikes make it a worthwhile endeavor. Additionally, surplus energy can potentially generate extra income if your panels produce more electricity than you consume.

Solar Panel Grants Aberdeen

During 2024 there is only funding available in Aberdeen 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.
