Solar Panel Kits - Great for Supplemental Power

Solar Panel Kits- Great for Supplemental Power

Many individuals are taking small steps to lessen their carbon footprint on earth. Solar energy is a great way to reduce your energy usage, but may not always be cost-effective. Solar panel kits are an inexpensive alternative to installing full-home solar panels.

Price as a Factor
Installing solar panels on your home can range anywhere between £1,200 to £31,000 depending on the type of system needed to power your whole home. Kits, on the other hand, can be purchased for about £400.

Out of the Box Technology

Solar panel kits are the do-it-yourself alternative to having a professional install panels. Open the box set it up and your solar panel is ready for use!
Kits usually have everything necessary to get started, this includes:

  • a solar panel
  • mounting hardware
  • a solar charge controller and
  • a wiring kit

While you save money by installing them yourself, but the drawback is that solar panel kits are not meant to power an entire residential home.

Best Used for Supplemental Power

Most homes use more power in one day than a solar panel kit can provide. Therefore, it is recommended that kits are used for smaller homes- such as a vacation cabin, an RV or as back-up power for your residential home.
Solar panel kits can be perfect for “rainy days” when your lose power and need to provide your home with supplemental energy. Again, it is not recommended that you run all of your appliances and turn on all of your lights, but you can use a few lights and use smaller appliances with this back-up power.
If you want to “go green,” but can’t afford a rooftop installation of a solar panel, some solar power is always better than none and solar panel kits are the next best choice.
