To help our residents make the transition to clean energy, we've teamed up with other local authorities in Hampshire for Solar Together - a group solar panel buying scheme.
Solar Together Hampshire is an innovative scheme offering high-quality solar PV panels and battery storage. It is a group-buying scheme, which brings Hampshire households together to get high-quality solar panels at a competitive price.
We have ambitious target to help the Borough reach carbon neutrality by 2030, as part of our Climate and Environmental Emergency Action Plan. Once installed, Solar Panels provide an ongoing, free, zero carbon source of electricity to power homes and/or heat water.
The scheme is being run with independent experts in group-buying, iChoosr Ltd, who have run similar schemes across the country delivering over 1,300 installations and 28,000 tonnes of avoided lifetime carbon emissions.
If you already have solar panels installed you can also register to have battery storage added to your existing solar panels to maximise the benefits of your system, simply select this option on the website when registering.
How does it work?
- From 15 February, householders can register online to become part of the group for free and with no obligation.
- Pre-vetted UK solar PV suppliers participate in an auction on 23 March. They can offer competitive pricing as the volume and geographic concentration will make it possible for them to realise greater efficiencies, which they pass on with lower price installations.
- After the auction, registered households will receive a personal recommendation which is specific to the details they submitted in their registration.
- If they choose to accept their recommendation, the specifics of their installation will be confirmed with a technical survey, after which a date can be set for the installation.
- Telephone and email helpdesks are on-hand throughout the whole process which, together with information sessions, will allow households to make an informed decision in a safe and hassle-free environment.
