Why should I purchase a 5kW Solar Panel System?

Do you spend hours researching methods to save money? You are not alone. As energy costs continue to spiral and the world becomes more conscious regarding its impact on the environment, many UK households have been watching their electricity bills rise as they become more aware of their energy consumption.

If you reside in a large property, for example a four bedroom house, and you are looking for ways to reduce your energy bill, then installing a 5kW solar system may be the perfect solution for your household. Not only will a 5kW model produce enough power output to fulfil your energy needs on average, but you will also see a dramatic decrease in your energy bills.

How many solar panels will I need to power a 5kW solar system?

In order to power a 5kW solar system, you will need to install 20 solar panels on your property. Typically, this means that your roof space will need to have at least 32m² of available space to install your solar panels. This number could increase depending on the type and size of the solar panels you are having installed on your property.

How much does a 5kW solar system cost?

Due to various factors, the final price of any solar panel system can vary tremendously. Solar panel manufacturers will have to take a selection of elements into consideration before providing you with the final price, these include:

  • The type of solar panels you wish to install on your property.
  • How many solar panels you will require to power your household.
  • If you wish to install a solar battery, and how many solar batteries you may require.
  • What type of solar inverter you wish to purchase.
  • How long installation will take, and any additional labour costs this may involve.


However, to give you a general idea regarding how much a 5kW solar system may cost you, they can typically range between £8,000 and £9,000 on average. This should only be taken as a guideline, if you are looking for specific costing in relation to how much a solar system may cost your household, then get in touch with ESE Group’s solar panel experts.

5kW Solar System Advantages

Lower Your Energy Bills

One of the biggest benefits to consider when purchasing a solar panel system, is how much money you can save in the long run. With many homeowners struggling with the cost of living and energy crisis’, everyone is looking for ways to reduce their outgoings. By installing a solar system, you will be able to produce your own electricity to power your home, making you less reliant on the big energy companies.

Gain Energy Independence

By installing solar panels on your property, you will gain energy independence away from the big energy companies. Typically, the vast majority of households in the United Kingdom are powered using the National Grid. However, this leaves you vulnerable to price increases and power outages. Instead, you could purchase solar panels and have your own reliable power supply at home.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Another key benefit of solar systems is that it is a more environmentally friendly method to power your home. Solar panels produce solar power by capturing sunlight, whereas the National Grid uses fossil fuels to generate electricity. Not only is solar power more environmentally friendly, but it is also a reliable renewable energy source.

Increase The Value Of Your Home

As the environmental agenda continues to become more important in the UK and throughout the world, if you have a solar panel system installed on your property then potential buyers may consider this as an added benefit to purchasing your property, and you could increase the value of your home. Not only could this improve the value of your home, but you will get more money in your back pocket if you decide to sell your home at a later date.

5kW Solar System Disadvantages

High Upfront Costs

One of the biggest drawbacks of solar panel systems is how much they cost to purchase. Of course, after a set period of time your solar system will pay for itself, and even make you further money, but the initial cost is quite significant.

However, it is also important to remember that your solar panel system will have a long lifespan, which allows for a greater return on investment. Additionally, most solar systems come with a long warranty that covers a large majority of their predicted lifespan.

Reliant On Sunlight Exposure

Due to the mechanics of solar panels, you will become very reliant on the sunlight exposure in your local area. In order to generate enough electricity to fulfil your power consumption requirements, you will need good weather conditions. If you live in an area that does not see a lot of sunlight, or your solar panels may be obstructed during the day, then you may find that this system may not be the ideal choice to power your home.

However, it is also important to note that solar panels will still produce solar power on overcast days, because they don‘t require direct sunlight to work. The system will simply not be as efficient compared to days of prolonged sunlight.

Will I be able to fit a 5kW Solar Panel System on my roof?

We have previously outlined how many solar panels you will require to power your 5kW solar system, and how much roof space that will take up. If you do not have the necessary roof space available to install solar panels to produce the power output your household requires, perhaps solar panels are not a wise investment for your household.

We can provide you with a free, no-obligation solar quote to determine if a solar system is right for you, though, if you’re unsure.

5kW Solar System FAQs

Some of the most common questions about a 5kW solar system are answered for you here…

The amount of money that you can save by utilising solar power is highly dependent on how much electricity your household will use compared to how much you generate. The more electricity you use, the greater the risk is that you may rely upon the National Grid once more.

While we can’t give you a straightforward answer regarding how much money you can save by using solar panels, the average annual saving per household can typically range between £320 to £400. These numbers can get higher or lower depending on how much power your household uses.

Another element that can further increase your return on investment relates to whether you can sell any of the solar power your panels generate back to the National Grid. There will be times throughout the year when your energy usage will vary. If you have found that you have surplus energy from your solar panels, you are able to sell this electricity back to the National Grid and earn money.

You can earn extra money with your solar panel system by signing up for the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). The SEG initiative is backed by the UK Government, with the aim of promoting renewable energy resources as the world hopes to move away from the burning of fossil fuels. Essentially, the Government will pay you money for the excess electricity generated by your solar panels if you pump it back into the National Grid.

Considering the hefty price tag that comes along with investing in solar panels, you may be interested in how long they typically last for. The industry standard lifespan of solar panels ranges between 25 to 30 years. However, not every part of your solar panel system will last as long.

Additionally, when you purchase your solar panel system you should also take note of your warranty length. Most solar panel manufacturers will offer you a standard warranty of 25 years, which will grant you with greater peace of mind if anything were to go wrong.

In order to have a fully operational solar panel system, you do not require a solar battery. Solar batteries work by providing your solar system with storage capacity where you can store excess energy that your solar panels produce.

This stored energy can then be used during periods where your solar panels are not able to produce enough electricity to power your home, for example during overcast days or during the night. Alternatively, you can think of your solar battery as a backup power source if you were to ever suffer a power outage at your home.

Typically, solar batteries have a predicted lifespan of between 5 to 15 years. Meaning that you may need to purchase multiple batteries during the lifespan of your solar panels.

While a solar battery may not be an essential part of any solar panel system, you will require a solar inverter if you wish to utilise the electricity that your solar panels produce. This is because you will not be able to use this electricity when powering your standard household appliances, if you do not have a solar inverter.

Solar inverters work by taking the direct current (DC) that your solar panel system will produce, and converting it into alternating current (AC). The latter current will then be able to power your household appliances and devices, which are not compatible with DC.

Similar to a solar battery, a solar inverter will not last the entire lifecycle of your solar panels. Instead inverters have a predicted lifespan of between 10 to 12 years, meaning you may need to purchase at least two during the lifespan of your solar panels.
