Solar Photovoltaic Panel Installers
Solar Photovoltaic Panels (also known as Solar PV Panels or Photovoltaic Cells) are the UK’s leading form of domestic renewable electricity. With a lucrative government backed incentive scheme providing great financial returns, there has never been a better time to consider solar photovoltaic panels for your property.
The UK has a great climate for solar panels, and research has shown that higher electricity yields are achieved in the UK compared to Spain, due to the cooler climate being more favourable for solar PV panel electricity production. Solar panels still work when it is overcast, and with a 50+ year life span, you will receive a lot of free and green electricity.
The government backed Feed-in Tariff scheme provides lucrative financial payments for every unit of electricity your system generates, even if you use the power yourself. You can receive further bonus payments, known as the export tariff, if your house is energy efficient, and puts excess power back in to the grid.
It is essential that you choose a cheap solar photovoltaic panel installer that you can trust to complete your standard to the highest standards. All of the solar PV panel installers we work with are MCS certified, meaning that they are reputable and follow the leading trade practices to deliver the best solar panel installations.

Solar PV Panel Installation Costs
How much can you expect to pay for your solar PV panel installation in the UK? In recent years, the price of solar panel installation within the United Kingdom has dropped drastically, making it an affordable renewable energy option for even the strictest budgets. Solar Panel manufacturing costs have dropped, and healthy competition between installation companies has meant cheaper quotations. For a 3kW system, suitable for a 3 bedroom semi-detached property, you can expect to pay £4,000-6,000. Larger systems and complex installations may cost more.
Here to help you get a great Solar PV Panel deal!
The best way to ensure you are receiving a great deal on your solar panel installation is to compare multiple solar panel quotes. You do not have to choose the cheapest, and can use other quotes to negotiate a better deal with your preferred installer.
MCS certification is a sign quality, and gives you piece of mind that your installation will be performed to the highest standards. It is also essential that your installer (and the panels they use) are MCS certified to ensure you qualify for the Feed-in Tariff.

Crystalline Solar Panels
Crystalline Solar Photovoltaic Panels come in two forms – Monocrystalline silicon cells and Polycrystalline silicon cells.
Monocrystalline Silicon Cell solar panels are one of the most efficient forms of solar panel available. Monocrystalline solar panels are made from the highest grade silicon, and are produced from a singular crystals of silicon. Monocrystalline silicon cells cost more than polycrystalline solar panels.
Polycrystalline Silicon Cells (also know as multicrystalline silicon cells) are easier and more affordable to manufacture, but are also less efficient. Crystalline Solar Panels are extremely durable, and often have a life span of over 50 years, and many manufacturers provide a 25 year warranty.
We can help you find a trusted and affordable Polycrystalline or Monocrystalline Solar Panel installer in the UK.
Thin-Film Solar Cells (TFSC)
After crystalline based solar panels, thin-film solar cells are the most commonly used form of solar photovoltaic panel. Thin-Film solar panel technology has improved in recent years, with energy yields improving to near crystalline silicon cell levels.
Thin-film solar panels are popular with consumers due to their uniform and sleek appearance, and due to the manufacturing, they are also cheaper than crystalline solar panels. One of the biggest down sides of thin film solar cell panels is the shorter life span, which is typically around 20 years, more than half a crystalline panels life span.
Due to the manufacturing process of thin film solar panels, using thin layers of a photovoltaic material (such as cadmium telluride or amorphous silicon) on a substrate (such as glass or plastic), the applications of these solar panels extend far beyond solar farms and rooftops, and can be used on boats, caravans, etc.
Solar Panels Cheap can help you find a trusted and affordable thin-layer solar cell panel installer in the UK.

Solar PV Panels can be an exciting addition to any property, both having financial incentives, and huge environmental benefits. To ensure you receive a great deal on your solar panel installation, below we highlight what you need to know about solar photovoltaic panels.
The current Feed-in Tariff rates and inclusions make Solar Panel installation very lucrative, but with proposed changes starting on the 1st January 2016, a lot of people have been worried that these changes will slash the payment rates. Currently, solar panel installations can benefit from a generous payment of 12.47p/kWh of electricity generated (based on a solar PV of 4kW or less installed on a property with an EPC of D or higher).
Solar Panel installation may appear to be quite straight forward – you find an installer you like, receive a quote, proceed with the installation and sit back and enjoy your free electricity. But it is essential that you follow a few basic guidelines to ensure you get the best from your solar panels.
