Benefits of Installing Solar Panels in 2024

Solar panels and other renewable energy sources offer substantial promise for the future and are a prudent investment for your home in 2024. There has never been a better time to have them installed. Here are some of the key benefits you can expect:

Installing a 4kW system can lead to annual savings of hundreds of pounds on rising electricity costs.

Generating your own electricity reduces dependence on external energy sources and shields you from price fluctuations.

By disconnecting from the grid, you become more resilient to potential future price increases.

You also have the option to sell any excess energy back to the grid at prevailing rates.

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

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

Properties equipped with solar panels often command higher resale values owing to their reduced energy expenses and eco-friendly appeal.

Solar power contributes to diversifying the energy mix, thereby bolstering energy security and resilience against power outages, a particularly valuable asset for residents in rural areas of Inverness and the Highland region.

In essence, the installation of solar panels presents both financial and environmental benefits, rendering it a savvy investment for both homeowners and businesses.

Types of Solar PV System

Solar PV, short for solar photovoltaic, denotes the process of transforming light into electricity. Solar PV systems found in Inverness and Highland are generally classified into four main 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. They are particularly suitable for roofs with limited space.

Polycrystalline solar PV systems are considered a traditional option in the solar industry. While they were once the primary choice for new installations, they are still widely used globally.

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

Hybrid PV systems direct 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, enabling its utilisation at a later time. This ensures maximum efficiency of the system while minimising waste.

We offer installation services for a range of solar panels and PV systems.

Best Solar Panels Inverness

Before discussing the cost of installing solar panels, let’s explore the leading panel options available in Inverness and Highland.

Monocrystalline solar panels are formed from a single, large silicon crystal rather than smaller chips. Although they might come with a higher upfront expense, they boast remarkable efficiency, making them perfect for maximising the return on your solar panel investment.

Characterised by their usually black colour, these panels also come in various hues. They excel in situations where space is limited but significant electricity output is needed.

Comprising numerous small silicon crystals, these panels epitomise the first generation of solar panel technology. While they boast affordability in manufacturing, they lag behind hybrid or monocrystalline panels in terms of advancement. Though less efficient than monocrystalline panels, they stand as the most budget-friendly choice.

Typically sporting a blue hue and larger dimensions compared to newer types, they may be less suitable for smaller spaces.

The installation of amorphous solar panels is gaining traction due to its versatility. These panels consist of multiple films layered atop one another, with each film reacting to specific light frequencies, collectively functioning as a solar panel.

These products resemble a membrane rather than a bulky panel, offering flexibility. They can be applied to various substrates such as glass, steel, or other suitable materials, enabling 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, requiring more panels for adequate energy production. Nonetheless, they are cost-effective, heat resistant, and have a low profile.

Hybrid solar panels combine the benefits of organic and inorganic semiconductors, boosting their light absorption capacity. This results in high efficiency, substantial electricity output, and suitability for compact areas.

While they are the most expensive option, hybrid panels are the optimal choice for the Inverness climate due to their superior efficiency. However, the novelty of this technology means paying premium prices for established brands or risking reliability with lesser-known models.

In your first consultation, we'll explore the most appropriate solar panel options tailored to your home's needs.

Solar Panels Inverness Cost

The cost of solar panels in Inverness depends 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 Inverness typically start at around £6,500, although smaller PV systems can begin from as little as £4,000.

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

Solar Panel Grants Inverness

During 2024 there is only funding available in Inverness 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.
