Orchid Energy

Energy prices have been rapidly rising, and many people have started looking for alternative options – one of which is switching to renewable energy. But perhaps you’ve been wondering if solar panels are a good investment? The short answer is yes, and here’s why… 

One reason that now is a great time to switch to solar power is that the cost of having solar panels fitted has gone down by over 88% in the last 10 years or so, while the costs of electricity bills are continuing to increase. Additionally, Solar Panels are currently free from VAT, giving you a further reduction of 20%!

Solar panels use energy from the sun to power your house – meaning that the energy you get from them is free! Additionally, you will be paid for any energy you don’t use, as it can be sold to the National Grid! 

In fact, if you have a solar panel system installed now, it could take as little as 4-6 years to recoup your investment, and considering the fact that energy prices are expected to stay high for at least 2 years, it may take even less time! 

Not only are solar panels going to save you money, they will also increase the value of your home. Recent research shows that 76% of buyers are more likely to purchase a property with energy-saving measures, and solar panels could add up to 14% to your home’s value!
