Cost and financial returns
Rooftop solar panels usually cost between £650 and £1200 per kWp installed, depending on roof access costs, covering and pitch. A 50kWp system will cost anywhere between £33,000 and £55,000 plus VAT.
A kWp typically gives a saving of around £110 per year, so £5,500 for a 50kWp system, giving a payback time of between 6 and 10 years. The panels will last 25 years or so (with one inverter replacement expected during this time). The return over 20 years is usually 9-18% (IRR%).
Most of the return comes in the form of a reduced electricity bill – for a typical business, each kWh generated by the solar system is worth around 12p if used on site, and 5p if exported to the grid.
On average over 25 years (taking into account degradation of panels), a kWp will generate 750-900kWh a year. That’s around 20,000 kWh over the life. So the cost per kWh of solar energy is only around 5.5p per kWh. Now that’s something to shout about!
The grid cost is 12p for the typical business, and rising… and rising…
