The Cost of Solar Panels for Horticulture

The cost of your horticulture solar panels depends on various key factors, including your energy consumption and the size of your solar array. For example, ground-mounted solar panels typically have higher upfront costs than rooftop installations as they require more mounting equipment.

Fortunately, the cost of solar panels has dropped significantly within the past few years, making solar power more accessible for horticulture business owners all over the UK. The UK government also offers solar grants to improve farm productivity. Eligible applicants can receive between £15,000 and £100,000 towards installing solar panels.
