Energy Savings Trust – “Increased Savings and Income from Solar PV Installations”

The Energy Saving Trust has revealed that the average combined savings and income made from households installing solar PV panels has increased by nearly £100.

Previous data indicated that the average combined savings and income for households installing solar PV panels was around £540 per year; however, new figures show this has increased to £635. This is mainly because the size of the installations has increased.

Ian Cuthbert, renewables expert from the Energy Saving Trust, said, ?The average size of solar PV installations has increased from 3kWp to 3.5kWp, which basically means households are generating more electricity and therefore more savings and feed-in tariff income. It is clear that UK households are increasingly looking to get the maximum yield from their roof to maximise the benefits of the solar installation.?

These figures should provide householders, whose homes are appropriate for solar panels, with the reassurance that they will be making significant savings and income as a result of a PV installation. In the Hampshire and Solent region, we get more sunshine than the UK average, so the returns will be even better!
