⚡️ Solar Roof Tile Questions
Solar tiles cost slightly more than standard solar panels. However, when you consider that they are the roof material and solar panel combined, so you do not have to purchase a new roof, and additional solar panels.
As a rough estimate (very much dependent on the product), Standard Solar Panels cost on average £1750 per kW, or £250 per square metre. Solar Tiles cost on average £2250 per kW or £350 per square metre. However it is worth remembering that solar tiles replace the roof materials, so you do not need to purchase and install roof tiles if you go for the solar tiled option.
Plus UK customers pay ZERO VAT on solar panels and tiles between now and 2025. So it is an ideal time to make the investment.
Please note these prices do not include installation costs (which are usually around 25% of the material cost), or any battery storage.
Megasol Solar Tiles are made to order so delivery will be approximately 12-16 weeks from date of order. Solar Panels are usually quicker - approx 6 weeks from date of order.

Yes, we have a fantastic team of qualified installers across the UK ready to go.
We break down the decision to two aspects - cost and carbon footprint.
With skyrocketing electricity prices, there has never been a better time to invest in solar power. Solar Panels, battery storage and EV charging are the perfect combination to use ALL the power you generate instead of buying electricity from the grid!
If you are replacing your roof, or building a new home or commercial premises, solar tiles mean you do not need separate roof tiles and solar panels.
You also do not need to compromise the look of your home, office or commercial building to be greener and more sustainable. Some people do not like the look of standard solar panels, but still wish to generate their own power and/or offset their carbon footprint. Solar Tiles are the perfect solution for a greener, more sustainable future, while making your roof look great.
Of course! Standard Solar panels have fantastic benefits too. Click here to find out more about our Standard Panels.
