Is solar energy still a good investment, a good way of being green, or both?

Ever since the popularity of solar panels has increased there have been solar-nay-sayers claiming that solar panels actually require more energy to make than they save over their lifespan.

Well according to Amy Galland, author of the Clean & Green Best Practices in Photovoltaics the energy pay-back time for solar is low, and shrinking. The report shows that it takes about a year for a solar crystalline panel to produce as much power as it took to make it. "And after that first year it then creates electricity for another 30 years with no emissions." Galland adds.

Beyond a short energy payback period, solar companies seem to be acting socially and environmentally responsible, according to the report.

 

"The solar industry is aware of issues and is investing in solutions... different from the utilities who are aware of issues and are investing in lobbyists." - Amy Galland

So if you are looking to be greener then solar panels will definitely do just that, but what if you're looking to install solar panels as a financial investment, is it still a good choice in light of the changing feed-in-tariff (FiT) and criteria?

Firstly, if you have an existing Energy Performance Certificate with a D rating or above, or will achieve this rating with relative ease, and your property has a south-facing roof, then you will struggle to find a better option.

With the cost of installing solar panels at an all-time low due to falling manufacturing costs and fierce competition between installation companies, coupled with the fact that you can earn over £850 per year from the FiT, as well as save on your electricity bill, means your investment can return over 10% per annum... for 25 years. That is something that no savings account can compete with.
