Solar power made easy

Sevenoaks District Council has teamed up with Kent County Council and Solar Together to offer residents an opportunity to purchase solar panels without the hassle.

Solar Together Kent is a group-buying scheme, which brings households together to get high-quality solar panels at a competitive price. The more people who sign up, the cheaper it is for everyone.

How does it work?

• Householders can register online to become part of the group for free and without obligation.

• Pre-approved UK solar PV suppliers participate in a reverse auction. They are able to offer competitive pricing as the volume makes it possible for them to achieve greater efficiencies, which they pass on as lower priced installations.

• After the auction, registered households will be emailed a personal recommendation which is specific to their requirements.

• 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 of their solar PV system.

• 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.

You can register for free and without obligation by 27 May 2023.
