Solar Together scheme launches in district

Employees Installing Solar Panels

Save on energy bills and help cut carbon emissions by investing in solar panels through an exciting new group-buying energy scheme.

Solar Together Leicestershire helps people looking to make an investment in solar panels on their house and battery storage systems for a reduced rate.

Signing up is free for residents and opens from Monday 09 May. For more information and to sign up, visit the dedicated web page.

Residents who register will be entered into an auction, where Solar PV suppliers compete by offering the lowest rate for solar panel installation. The more people registered, the lower the price can be.

Working with iChoosr, Solar Together then provides those signed up with a free, no obligation offer from the successful energy supplier. A personal recommendation will be emailed out with information on the winning solar panel installer, the proposed system, costs, and savings ready for residents to make their choice.

Blaby District Council is currently working towards the authority being carbon neutral by 2030, with the aim of seeing the whole district carbon neutral by 2050. Installing solar panels on homes can reduce carbon emissions by generating clean electricity and save homeowners money on energy costs.

Councillor Les Phillimore, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Community and Environmental Services said: “We’re delighted to join with Solar Together and be part of an initiative giving residents the opportunity to reduce their energy costs and support our green agenda.

“It’s the perfect time to help households from all across the county take steps towards greater energy independence by working alongside other authorities on this scheme.”

Registration closes on Tuesday 14 June with the selection revealed from Monday 04 July onwards.

Blaby District Council is leading on the campaign in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council, Harborough District Council, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Leicestershire County Council, Melton Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council and Oadby and Wigston Borough Council.
