In keeping with EUPD Analysis figures, PV system costs for single-family houses in Germany elevated barely within the second quarter of 2023. Regardless of the autumn in module costs, analysts don’t count on the prices will lower considerably within the coming months. The costs additionally rely loads on the context of the set up, the selection of elements, and the area, so evaluating the value with common figures, equivalent to these utilized by Enpal in emails to non-public households, shouldn’t be very significant.

The common system worth for rooftop PV programs in German single-family houses with and with out battery storage elevated by round 10% to €1,557 ($1,711)/kW within the second quarter of 2023, in comparison with the primary quarter of the 12 months. The costs are 21.9% greater than within the second quarter of 2022 when it stands at € 1,277 / kW.
Though module costs are at the moment falling within the worldwide market, there is no such thing as a motive to postpone funding selections within the hope of cheaper costs.
“We don’t count on system costs for small programs to lower considerably within the subsequent few months,” mentioned Finn Bee, an analyst at EUPD Analysis. When requested straight, nonetheless, solely 28% of set up firms mentioned costs had elevated. “Final 12 months it was generally greater than 90%.”
The widespread reference worth for PV programs in single-family houses is 10 kW of solar energy and 10 kWh of battery storage capability. In a survey of 100 installers, EUPD Analysis discovered that the costs of such programs ranged from €18,500 to €45,500. The values range broadly as a result of they’re calculated by including the minimal and most values of storage and photo voltaic programs for dimension lessons under and above 10 kW. Common worth can also be not a significant metric for evaluating a specific provide. Nevertheless, these numbers are finest used to find out worth developments.
The precise costs rely loads on the context of the set up, amongst different issues. For instance, it relies on whether or not a brand new meter is required, on the selection of element, on the system tools, and on whether or not a hybrid inverter or a number of inverters are put in.
The area the place a home is positioned additionally performs a task.
“Costs differ by area by as much as 20%,” Bee mentioned.
And, after all, the origin of the merchandise and the kind of ensures range. Particularly within the final 12 months, many cheaper battery storage gadgets from beforehand unknown Chinese language producers have entered the market. Minimal costs fell consequently, however common and most costs rose.
Within the case of photo voltaic modules, the value relies on the effectivity, amongst different issues. With the identical output energy, high-efficiency modules require much less area, producing extra electrical energy in the identical space of the roof. In fact, that comes at a further value.
Within the present problem of pv journal in Germanythe specialists for big programs calculated how excessive the extra value relies on the effectivity with out the revenue struggling consequently (“Topcon, HJT, IBC – which new module merchandise are actually helpful ?” and “Pay just for what you get “).
The worth vary for battery storage may be very massive, as many features play a task in these programs. These with emergency powers that keep in mind climate forecasts often value extra.
General, owners ought to take into account all of those components when evaluating costs between the 2 gives. With the provide of a flyer from Enpal, which most likely ended up in lots of mailboxes in the meanwhile, you not solely want to concentrate if the value is someplace in the midst of the large worth vary, but when the components match the value.
pv journal requested Peter Knuth, the co-founder of Enerix, about costs and elements.
“Our companions additionally sometimes provide under common worth ranges,” Knuth mentioned.
The corporate gives PV programs nationwide by way of specialist franchise firms. He sees completely different buyer teams. Whereas some are completely satisfied to search out the most cost effective doable costs on-line, others admire the assist supplied by regional specialist firms.
These native firms not solely present video recommendation, but in addition dedicate one to 2 hours on web site to examine particular situations, together with electrical installations.
“Then they advise, for instance, to put in steel tiles on the roof, if vital,” mentioned Knuth.
In areas with heavy snowfall and potential threat of tile breakage from roof hooks, this situation can be utilized. The information improves confidence within the high quality and stability of the product as a result of clients, as acknowledged by Knuth, typically discover it tough to guage technical facets independently.
