2kW Solar Panel System

What Is a 2kW PV Solar Panel System?

Did you know that you can cover the electricity needs of a small home with a 2kW solar system? Such systems can produce the energy needed by 1-3 people and will make your home more environmentally friendly.

Even though solar panel in the UK are produced by many different manufacturers, the principle stays the same. Each solar panel system is made up of a set of solar panels. Each of those solar panels consists of many solar cells grouped together. The solar cells gather light and transform it into electricity ready to use.

The 2 kW solar panels system is different in a way that its output rate is obviously different from the rates of all the other larger systems. The annual electricity generated is expected to be around 1,800 kWh.

How Much Does a 2 kW Solar Panel System Cost?

The regular 2 kW solar panel system, requiring 14 m2 roof space usually starts at around £2,500 in the UK. However, an experienced supplier can determine the final price by taking into consideration the size of your roof and everything that could possibly complicate the installation. Anyways, a 2 kW PV solar panel system is likely going to require an investment of around £3,500 for both purchasing and installing.

How Can I Maximise Efficiency?

The efficiency of any solar panel system is strongly linked to its geographical location and the angling of your roof (or the installation surface, in case it’s not your roof). However, any installer with experience should be able to determine the best possible placement for your solar panels. Keep in mind that any trees or buildings shading over your roof will prevent your panels from realizing their full potential. 

It's also important to note that storing energy will decrease the amount of sunlight you waste. This is why solar batteries are important. You can check our comprehensive reviews to see our candidates for the best solar battery storage in the UK.

How Can I Make a Profit with My Solar Panels?

Considering the fact that you are likely to spend over £3,500 for purchasing and installing a 2 kW solar panels system, having a return on your investment would be something you’d like. Keep in mind that in order to qualify for any solar panel funding, your supplier must be MCS accredited!
