There are a number of factors that make up the cost of a solar installation.

From the more obvious - the number and quality of the solar panels, the type and quality of the inverter.

Will a new small dedicated circuit board have to be installed? How far/complex is the cable route from the panels to the inverter to the consumer unit and meter?
