Solar Together Hampshire Scheme

Are you interested in solar panels for your property but not sure where to start? Solar Together Hampshire might be the thing you are looking for. This scheme offers users the chance to buy solar panels at a highly competitive price by applying as a group buying scheme.

How does it work?

Registration
Register before 23 March for free, and without obligation online at solartogether.co.uk/hampshire. You fill in the details of your roof, like size and position.

Auction
An auction will be held on 23 March. Approved suppliers submit bids. The more people register, the better the deal for each household.

Personal recommendation
From 12 April you will be contacted with a personalised offer, based on the specifications of your roof. This includes the costs and specification of your solar panel installation, and the option to add battery storage.

You decide
The decision is then yours as to whether you want to accept your offer. There is no obligation to continue. You will have until 21 May to decide.

Installation
If you accept the offer, the winning supplier will contact you to survey your roof and set an installation date. All installations are planned to be completed by the end of October 2021.

For more information see this Solar Together Information Leaflet (PDF), www.solartogether.co.uk/hampshire, email hampshire@solartogether.co.uk or call 0800 098 8415 (Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm).

Background Information

Hampshire County Council declared a Climate Emergency in June 2019 and Cabinet approved the Hampshire County Council Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan in 2020.

The Strategy is based upon two targets set by the County Council; to be Carbon neutral and to be resilient to a 2 degrees temperature increase by 2050, for both the County Council and the wider County area.

The Strategy has been developed using robust evidence to ensure we are focussing on the right areas; these are the key sectors where action will need to be taken.

The County Council has limited control over the majority of the emissions in the Hampshire area, so it is really important that the whole Hampshire community, including other public sector partners, residents, and businesses play their part.

One key sector and new area of work where the County Council is starting to take more action is on energy use within the residential sector. Last summer they announced four community projects that will focus on this area. See Community projects | Hampshire County Council (hants.gov.uk).

Solar Together Scheme

One of the projects, the Hampshire Solar Together scheme is launching on the 15 February.

The scheme, managed by iChoosr, independent experts in group buying schemes, seeks to increase the amount of renewable energy being generated at household level, which is one of the major gaps in Hampshire.

Targeted to homeowners and SMEs, the schemes will give residents the opportunity to buy high quality solar panels and battery storage from reputable traders at a highly competitive price.
