Benefits of Solar Panels in 2024

Solar panels and renewable energy sources, in general, offer immense potential for the future and stand as a smart investment for your home in 2024. There has never been a better moment to consider installation for your home. Here are some of the primary advantages you can expect:

By installing a 4kW system, you can save hundreds of pounds every year on rising electricity bills.

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

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

You can also sell any surplus energy back to the grid at the highest or a higher rate.

Transitioning to renewable energy sources aids in environmental preservation and reduces dependence on traditional fossil fuels like gas.

The accumulated energy cost savings from your solar panel system eventually offset its initial investment.

Properties equipped with solar panels often command higher resale values owing to their reduced energy expenses and environmentally friendly features.

Solar power contributes to diversifying the energy mix, thereby enhancing energy security and resilience against power outages. This is particularly significant for residents in rural areas of Dundee, Tayside, and Angus.

Types of PV Systems

Solar PV, short for solar photovoltaic, involves the conversion of light into electricity. In Dundee, Tayside, and Angus, solar PV systems are commonly classified into four primary categories:

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

These panels are well-suited for roofs with limited space.

Polycrystalline solar PV systems are regarded as a legacy system in the solar industry. Initially, these panels and systems were the primary choice for new installations and continue to be commonly used worldwide.

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

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 Dundee and Angus

Before discussing the cost of solar panel installation, let’s review the best types of panels available in Dundee, Tayside, and Angus.

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 Dundee Cost

The cost of solar panels in Dundee can vary based on several factors:

  • Type of panels: Opting for budget-friendly panels may require more units, while higher end panels may cost more per unit.
  • Size of the PV system: If you’re using solar as a backup, a smaller system may suffice, reducing costs for inverters and battery storage.
  • Energy generation needs: A smaller household may require a less extensive system compared to a larger family.
  • Roof size: Limited roof space may necessitate prioritizing efficiency over cost.
  • Future plans: Considering factors like potential changes in household size or property resale value can help determine the appropriate system size.

 

The average starting cost for a solar panel system installation in Dundee is around £6,500. While this initial investment may seem substantial, the long-term savings on electricity bills can be significant. Additionally, a well-designed system can provide immunity against future rate increases. There’s even potential to generate extra income by selling surplus electricity back to the grid.

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.

All funding is available via Home Energy Scotland.

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