I would like to thank you for your help and support in helping us produce the Healthy Wealden website. We hope it will be a valuable tool in improving the health and wellbeing of Wealden residents and visitors to our district.
Wealden District Council is working with partner authorities across Sussex to help residents install solar panels and/or battery storage at a reduced cost. Solar Together Sussex is a group-buying scheme, which brings residents together to buy large volumes of solar panel installations to get the best possible price.
The scheme is open to homeowners, landlords and businesses. Participants can register until 5 October at www.solartogether.co.uk, giving details of their roof size and orientation. Registration is free and there is no obligation to proceed.
An auction will be held on 6 October, when pre-vetted solar installers will bid for the work. Participants will then receive a personal offer from the winning supplier, setting out the cost of the installation and the likely return on investment. This will help them make an informed decision whether to reject or accept the offer and proceed with the installation.
We want to help residents save money on their electricity bills and reduce their carbon emissions. You may already be aware that there are currently no grants for the purchase and installation of solar photovoltaic panels (PV). This scheme will help those residents who want to install solar PV, do so at a reduced cost. The more people that register, the better the offer is likely to be.
We would therefore be grateful if you would disseminate this information to your Councillors and residents and encourage uptake in your community. I have attached a flyer for display or circulation.
For more information visit Wealden’s section of the website at www.solartogether.co.uk/wealden where there is a short video explaining how the scheme operates. There is also a Freephone number 0800 014 8738 and a contact form for additional questions or help with registration.
[Solar Together Sussex is being run by councils across East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove in conjunction with iChoosr, the group-buying specialists].
