Registration has opened on a solar panel offer for Cambridgeshire residents. Households across Cambridgeshire can now register for the chance to club together to buy and install solar panels at a reduced price. The County Council and District Councils have joined forces with Solar Together as part of the initiative to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
Households and small and medium-sized enterprises can now register for free and without obligation for the group-buying scheme by visiting the website https://www.solartogether.co.uk/cambridgeshire/home
The County Council will then arrange an auction with pre-vetted installers on 6th October 2020. The auction is a reverse auction, meaning the lowest bid wins. The winning bid sets the price for all solar systems and battery systems. All installers are pre-vetted and must comply with certain criteria to guarantee the quality of the offer.
After the auction, applicants will receive a personal recommendation based on their registration details. They then have six weeks to decide if they want to take up the recommendation and proceed with an installation.
Households that already have solar panels installed can also register to have battery storage added to their existing solar panels to maximise the benefits of their system.
