When it comes to solar panels, we have you covered. Here at the Eco Renewables Group, we work across the North West, from Liverpool to Lancaster, and everywhere in between, to provide quality solar power solutions. As a result, we are often asked a range of questions regarding solar power and storage. So we have produced this guide to solar panel considerations.

The cost of solar panels

One of the first considerations of solar panels should be the cost. While the cost has dropped significantly in recent years, it can still set you back up to £4000 depending on the size of your home and your location. This is an investment that will keep on paying off though, with the savings from the electricity bills annually, coupled with the Feed in Tariff you could receive.

When shopping around for solar panels, its important that you don’t just choose the cheapest quote. This is because you could end up with inadequate panels that barely generate enough electricity to power your kettle, or the quote could be hiding a range of “extra” costs. Instead, you should choose a company that is professional, a company you can trust.

Solar Panel Requirements

Secondly. solar panels themselves have their own requirements. In the majority of cases, solar panels will class as permitted development which means that you dont need to worry about planning permission. However, there are always exceptions, such as homes in conservation areas. For this reason, you need to be aware of the restrictions and requirements for solar panels in your area, before you begin the process.

In addition, you will need to make sure that your roof is suitable for the additional weight of the solar panels.

Feed-in Tariff Solar Panels

The feed-in tariff (FIT) is a fantastic scheme that will pay the homeowner for every kWh of electricity produced, even if you use this electricity yourself. As a result, it is a great way to earn a considerable return on the investment cost of your solar panels.
