How much does solar PV installation cost in 2023?

Solar modules are a great way to reduce energy bills at a time when many are struggling with rising costs. As well as letting you cut energy costs, solar modules also help combat climate change – but how much do they actually cost? 

The cost of solar panels has been continuing to decrease over recent years. This means that if you want to buy solar panels, UK based sellers can give you better prices than ever. So, read on to find out more about what the cost of getting solar panels could be for you.

Solar power is a great renewable energy source, praised for being a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. They are better for your carbon footprint, but how much do solar panels cost? In 2023, solar panel installation could set you back thousands, although there are lots of factors. A single standard 400W panel could cost around £200-£250, so it all depends on how much solar electricity you need.

Extra, optional costs

There are also some additional solar panel costs to consider. For example, you may need to factor in solar batteries if you want to store any of the energy you gain. A solar battery is usually needed to ensure you can save excess energy and use it when you need it – for example when it is cloudy or during the night.

Often, you don’t need to worry about extra installation costs as many solar installers will include this in the price of their panels – however it is definitely worth checking beforehand.

It all depends on system size

How many solar panels are you looking to buy? If you have a larger house or need extra power, you may need a bigger system. Having larger panels or a higher number of panels can lead to higher initial costs, but also much larger electricity bill savings.

Other factors

When it comes to the cost of solar panels, other factors include electric wiring and complicated roofing. Depending on your house layout, you may need specialist components such as angled joists or additional cladding materials. These can range from a few hundred pounds to a few thousand, depending on the complexity of the project.
