Telling you how much solar panels cost is not going to help you because almost every month there are new products out with different specifications. Add to that the huge Solar Hot Waterupsurge in solar panels installation across the UK during 2015 and we have a market where prices are changing dramatically.

The actual costs of a solar panel is directly proportional to the amount of power it is designed to generate and is not based around the actual physical size of the solar panel itself.

Currently you are looking in the region of 5,000 to 7,000 for an installed system that would generate 1 kw. If you have a bigger system then the economies of scale kick in to bring the overall price down.


PRIMARY COMPONENT PARTS FOR A SOLAR PANEL SYSTEM

You need more than solar panels to make a solar panels system work. The primary components for a solar panels system are:

Solar panels charge the battery and the charge regulator insures proper charging of the battery. The battery provides DC voltage to the inverter, and the inverter converts the DC voltage to normal AC voltage. If 240 volts AC is needed, then either a transformer is added or two identical inverters are series-stacked to produce the 240 volts.


HOW MUCH FOR A SOLAR HOT WATER SYSTEM?

Solar thermal panels should provide most of your hot water from April to September, and make a worthwhile contribution in the months on either side of that period. Outside of that estimates vary depending on who you ask.

The Energy Savings Trust says solar panels will ‘provide about a third of your hot water How Much For s0047needs’, the Centre for Alternative Technology puts it at about half and a number of solar panel suppliers promise 60 to 70 per cent of annual hot water usage heated by the sun.

The reality will depend on a variety of factors:


HOW MUCH DOES SOLAR THERMAL COST?

Domestic solar thermal panels installations are subject to a huge range of prices. Researchers at Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute analysed the prices of systems getting low carbon buildings programme grants between 2006 and 2008. They found prices ranging from 1,000 to 8,000. The cost will vary a good deal from one contractor to another, and will depend on the type and quality of the panels, whether you need scaffolding, and how easy it is to integrate into your existing plumbing system.
