    Solar installation FAQs

    How much does a solar panel installation cost?

    The good news is that the cost of solar panels is coming down, and solar installations cost less than most people think. And, of course, they’ll save you money, too! The total cost depends on a few factors: the type of panels, the size of your system, and the complexity of the installation. It’s important to get a personalised quotation, but prices start at £8,000 – and there are finance options available, so you don’t have to pay upfront.

    Can I get financial help to install solar panels?

    Typically, you’ll be responsible for covering the cost of solar panel installation yourself. However, once your system is up and running, you can take advantage of the government’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme. This allows you to earn money by selling any excess electricity you generate back to the national energy grid. This can help you offset the initial expenses and eventually provide a return on your investment.

    How much can I save on my energy bill with solar panels?

    How much you save will depend on several factors, such as your system’s size, your energy consumption, and the amount of sunlight your location receives. The average household can typically expect to save anything from a few hundred to around a thousand pounds a year. (Source: Eon Electricity website).

    How long does the installation process take?
    Usually, the actual installation takes just a few days, depending on the complexity and size of the system. Our solar panel installation team will handle everything, from assessing your property’s suitability to mounting the panels and connecting them to the electrical system.
    How do I maintain my solar panels?

    Solar panels generally require very little maintenance; good quality panels should last around 20-30 years. We recommend cleaning them regularly to remove any dirt that may reduce efficiency. In addition, it makes sense to have them checked over by a solar power professional every few years to check they’re working optimally.

    What our customers think

    Placed an emergency call out with Hopkins Electrical as I had lost all power to my house. Chris turned up within 60 minutes of me placing the call and found that a rat had bitten through one of the cables. He made a temporary repair and then came back a couple of days later and replaced the fuse board and the cabling. Neat job, very professional and very reasonably priced.

    Michael Underwood

    Chris and his team talked us through the whole re wiring process and made sure we had enough sockets and switches in the right places before we started any work. They turned up on time and were very professional in their approach to out very large project. They were always easy to get hold of and would always offer good solutions to any problems we had with our build.

    If like me the thought of having to find an electrician brings you out in a cold sweat then chill and call Hopkins Electrical. From start to finish they were professional and friendly. When they came and undertook the work I was so impressed with the transparency and integrity of their employee who talked me though everything. The work was done to a high standard and I have no problem giving them 5 stars. Great company, great service.
