Taunton Church, UK

Taunton is one of the best places in the UK to own a solar PV system. Installing a solar system in Taunton could benefit the owner with returns on investment of at least 7-10%–possibly higher. This is thanks to a combination of factors, including the falling price of solar panel technology, the rising price of electricity, and the UK’s feed-in tariff. All of these things make solar photovoltaic (PV) systems a smarter investment option than they have ever been. Solar Selections can help you find the best solar power installation deals in Taunton with free advice and system price and component comparisons.

Installing solar panels in Taunton, UK: The benefits

Cashing in on Taunton’s sun

In order to find the best deal on a system in Taunton, it is important to first understand how a solar system could potentially benefit any home in the UK. Once you’ve had it installed, every kilowatt-hour of power that your solar system produces will save you money on your electricity bill. It’s natural therefore to look for a system that will produce as much power per dollar spent as possible. How much power does a typical system produce?

During an average year, 1 kilowatt-peak (kWp) capacity of solar installed on a south-facing rooftop in the UK will generate an average of approximately 2.35 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per day (according to SAP). A 1.5kWp solar system will generate 3.53kWh of electricity; a 2kWp array in the UK will produce about 4.7kWh of energy; a 3kWp yielding 7.05kWh per day, and a 4kWp solar panel setup generating roughly 9.4kWh per day. A 5kWp solar system will generate 11.75kWh of power, and a 10kW system will generate twice that–23.5kWh. Larger systems will of course generate even more power in the right conditions.

For every kWh of solar power that your system produces, you will be paid a set rate (called the ‘generation tariff’) by your electricity supplier. On top of this, you will also benefit from the system by either 1) selling the power into the electricity grid (‘export tariff’) or 2) by using it at home and thereby reducing the amount of power you need to purchase from the grid. Under the current feed-in tariff agreement at the time of writing, for example, a household that installs a 4kWp system stands to save over £800/year on electricity bills.

How short the payback period on your system is will depend first and foremost on how much you pay for that system.
