The importance of comparing Birmingham solar panel installers before deciding on a system

Solar panels have become increasingly popular as investment opportunities for UK homes and businesses in the last few years, and Birmingham is no exception.

While the rsz_solar_panels_birminghamUK’s feed-in tariff incentive scheme has been unequivocally the main reason for the unprecedented boom in home solar panel installations, reductions in the incentives subsequent to their initial introduction resulted in a unsustainable boom-bust cycle, from which the UK’s solar industry is now slowly recovering. As competition between Birmingham installers remains fierce, it’s clear that there are good deals to be had, but finding a way to make direct, clear comparisons is key.

Why consider solar panels in Birmingham?

If you’re on reading this page, you’re probably considering having solar panels installed on the roof of your home or business in Birmingham. As mentioned above, solar systems are a great investment opportunity virtually anywhere in the UK (even Edinburgh, Scotland), thanks mainly to the government’s feed-in tariff, which rewards those who install systems for every unit of electricity that they produce. But on top of this is the lesser heard story of the falling cost of having a system installed–prices are less than half of what they were just a few years ago, making solar systems more accessible than ever to Birmingham residents.

Concretely speaking: Having a 4kW solar system installed in Birmingham (typically around £5,240 for a decent system) can save the average home well over £700 per year, with payback periods as short as 5-6 years and returns on investment as high as 22%. These figures are roughly the same as what they were back at the height of the feed-in tariff, which was reduced mainly because of its own success and the rapidly falling cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. This means that the value proposition for installing a system has not changed much (although this message doesn’t seem to have reached many of the UK’s homeowners).
