  1. Savings on Energy Bills

Energy prices continue to rise. Solar panels provide a cost effective solution, saving you money now and in the long run and they are becoming increasingly accessible and affordable. In fact, the cost of purchasing solar panels has dropped by 88% since 2010 as per The Eco Experts. They go on to say that solar panels can save the average UK household £534 per year.  Many reports indicate that this figure can be larger, depending on the use of the solar panels.

  • How many solar panels you have
  • How much electricity you use

  1. Property Value Increase

Solar panels are increasing the value of properties around the UK by 14% on average. This monumental increase can be attributed to three key reasons:

  • Homeowners looking to save money on energy bills
  • Solar panels are a big attraction to younger generations looking to do their part for the environment and improving global sustainability
  • Reducing your carbon footprint has a positive worldwide impact


These reasons are making houses with solar panels an attractive commodity, resonating with many who are house hunting. 

  1. Tackling the Myths

Unfortunately, some are put off investing in solar panels due to the upfront cost. However, it is well known that these solar panels provide initial, immediate savings, especially on energy bills. They then also provide long term savings on energy bills whilst increasing property value.

Many also believe that solar panels aren’t practical in the UK due to our unpredictable climate. Contrary to popular belief, solar panels don’t only love the sun. They love daylight. Even when it’s cloudy and gloomy, daylight is what solar panels need. 

As long as they’re correctly set up with nothing obstructing the sunlight, they’ll work a treat. Even during the night, using batteries will preserve the energy collected during the day for evening use.
