Solar Panels and Your EPC Rating

Solar Panels will definitely affect your EPC rating in a positive way, but they're not a magic tool that will raise your rating from an F to an A - nothing is.

In order to achieve an A rating, you would have to build your house from scratch, using the best energy reducing materials, buy A rated appliances AND generate your own electricity.

Renewable energy sources have become increasingly important over the years, and solar panels are a great way to harness the sun’s energy to generate electricity. Solar panels are not only beneficial for the environment, but they can also help to reduce energy bills for homeowners.

But do solar panels improve EPC ratings?

Can Solar Panels Increase Your EPC Rating?

Installing solar panels on your home can help to improve the EPC rating of a property. Solar panels generate electricity using the sun's energy, which can help to reduce your energy bills and carbon emissions.

To improve your EPC rating with solar panels, your home must have a rating of D or higher to start with, but will improve with the addition of solar panels, and will increase further when paired with battery storage.

Our solar panel panel and battery storage systems start from as little as £6,930, and also can add up to 25% to the value of your home.

An established, good quality system can add up to 15 points to your EPC rating - which could nudge your score into the higher category, allowing you to save money and increase saleability/rentability to your property.

What is an EPC Rating?

EPC stands for Energy Performance Certificate and is a guide to show how much energy your home is using and losing.

You can increase your EPC rating by having good insulation, double or triple glazing, and reducing the amount of fossil fuel energy that you use.

Every EPC is registered onto the Government's online database, this allows each property's score to be easily searchable for potential buyers or renters.

How is Your Home EPC Score Calculated?

Your EPC score is calculated using the property's Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP). The higher the SAP score, the higher the EPC score.
