Solar Together Kent


Solar Together Kent

We are working in partnership with Kent County Council to deliver Solar Together Kent which is a solar panel and battery storage group-purchase scheme. It allows residents and small businesses to install solar panels on their homes and businesses at an affordable price.

Solar panels can help you save money on energy bills, as well as reduce your carbon footprint. You can also choose to install battery storage to help you use more of your generated electricity.

Any homeowner, landlord, or small business in Kent is welcome to register: Applications are limited to 50 solar panels per property.

How to apply

Solar Together Kent launches on 1 September 2020.

You can register before 6 October 2020 for free and without obligation by providing details about your roof, for example its size and orientation at the Tunbridge Wells Solar Together Kent website.

Registrations should be made by the property owner, with landlords and small businesses limited to 50 panels.

Next steps

Auction

A supplier ‘auction’ will be held on 6 October 2020, when our approved solar suppliers will bid for the work.

The more people that register, the better the deal should be for each household.

Personal recommendation

From 26 October 2020 you will be contacted with a personal recommendation based on the specifications of your roof, after the auction. This includes your costs and specifications of your solar panel installation.

There is no obligation to continue and you will have until 11 December 2020 to consider the recommendation before deciding.

You will be invited to an information session where you can ask questions.

Installation

If you accept, the winning supplier will contact you to survey your roof and arrange an installation date. All installations should be completed by the end of May 2021.
