Are you looking for more eco-friendly energy sources to power your property in Edinburgh?

It’s no surprise. The city of Edinburgh is one of the leading places for sustainability not only in the UK but worldwide.

In fact, Edinburgh has ranked 10th globally as an eco-friendly travel destination, thanks to its biking opportunities, vegan restaurants, green-flag parks, and waste-conscious hotels.

It’s not just businesses, households in Edinburgh are some of the most climate aware; recycling nearly half of their waste and frequently using public transport, walking or cycling.

Edinburgh also has more greenspace than any other city in the UK and was named ‘the greenest city in the UK’ in 2019 for air quality, pollution, plastic recycling and green space.

With that in mind, you probably want to know how you can help Edinburgh remain one of the greenest places in the world. Let’s talk solar.

How Much Do Solar Panels Cost In Edinburgh?

How much are solar panels in Edinburgh going to cost you?

The answer varies greatly from one household to another. It depends on multiple factors such as the size of the panels, how many you need, and the inverter requirements for your solar setup.

It’s also likely that you’ll want to make the most of the sun in Edinburgh, so a battery to store solar power will be advantageous – adding to the price.

Then there are optional extras such as bird netting to protect your solar panels. Or perhaps you’d like a personal zappi car charging port included.

Benefits Of A Solar Panel Battery

While it’s possible to install solar panels without a battery, you’ll miss out on all the brilliant benefits:

Continuous Supply

Batteries store the energy generated from your solar panels. So on those bleak days mid-winter, you can continue to power your home without reverting back to the national grid.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

With a steady supply of solar energy all year round, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

Optimise Your Investment

It makes sense to generate and store as much solar energy as possible if you’re paying for solar panels. A battery lets you make the most of your investment.

Make A Profit

With the use of a battery, you may have more energy than you need. By choosing an SEG energy tariff, you can send your excess energy back to the grid and get paid for it!

Be Self-Sufficient

It feels good to be independent of the national grid for your energy supply. Concerns about blackouts or spiralling costs can be forgotten. With a battery, you can store and supply all the energy you need.
