Solar Panels in Devon

Devon Solar Energy Map Devon Irradiation Dial

According to the UK Solar Power County rankings, 30,498 households in Devon are already using solar to save on their energy bills. That's more than any other UK county. Perhaps you are thinking about joining them?

Devon has huge potential for solar PV with roughly 1,175 kWh of solar energy falling on each square metre in the county per year. Not surprisingly, Devon’s solar potential is way above the UK average and is in line with parts of Germany.

Devon homes already account for 110,532 kW of solar generating capacity and a well sited 4kW solar panel system in Devon has the potential to generate 4,105 kWh per year.

How it all Works

  • As well as savings from generating your own electricity, the Feed in Tariff pays householders and businesses for every unit of electricity your panels generate.
  • The current FIT rate for installations up to 10kW supplying power to a grid connected building is 3.86 p/kWh.
  • An additional tariff of 5.24 p/kWh is paid for unused electricity you "export" to the grid.
  • Your system must be installed by an MCS accredited installer.
  • Your installer should be able to help with the application process and explain any requirements

How Much do Solar Panels Cost in Devon
