Statistics released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change show the average cost of a 3kW domestic solar installation was nearly £1,000 more expensive in March than it was in January 2016, following big changes to the feed-in tariff paid for new installations.
Previously, solar installation costs have continually fallen over the last ten years. An increase may be related to reduced installation numbers following the government’s changes. Time will tell.
