For years, UK homeowners have struggled with the unpredictability and continual rise of
traditional energy costs. It’s an old story and a challenging one. But the narrative is shifting.
The emergence and growth of Solar PV systems in the UK have begun to redefine the energy
landscape, offering a beacon of light in a market often shrouded in darkness.
The reasons behind this shift are simple. Over the past decade, solar panel costs have
dropped by more than 88%, while electricity prices have continued to march upward. This
stark contrast makes the transition to Solar PV systems not just an environmentally-friendly
move but a financially astute one.
How Solar PV Systems Are Empowering Homeowners
Solar PV systems offer a level of energy independence never before possible. They enable
homeowners to produce their own electricity, substantially reducing dependence on the
national grid and insulating them from the unpredictability of traditional energy prices. The
energy derived from the sun is free, abundant and – most importantly – renewable. Once
your Solar PV system is installed, you can look forward to years of virtually free electricity.
What’s more, any energy you don’t use can be sold back to the National Grid. This is thanks
to the UK government’s Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme, which requires energy
suppliers to pay small-scale low-carbon generators for electricity exported to the National
How Solar PV Systems Enhance Property Values
Apart from their financial benefits in the form of lower energy bills and potential income,
Solar PV systems also have the ability to add substantial value to your property. Research
suggests that 76% of homebuyers are more likely to consider properties with energy-saving
measures in place. In other words, a Solar PV system isn’t just an investment in energy—it
could potentially increase your property’s value by up to 14%.
The journey to energy independence isn’t a fantasy. It’s happening right here, right now,
with Solar PV systems leading the charge. Orchid Energy is here to help you navigate this
journey, offering state-of-the-art Solar PV systems and a team of experts ready to guide you
