Press Release from Essex County Council
From today, Essex residents can register in ‘Solar Together Essex’ the solar panel group buying scheme aiming to create a greener and more sustainable future for our county.
Launched by Essex County Council in partnership with iChoosr- the group buying specialist, Solar Together Essex offers residents the opportunity to take part in an online auction for high quality solar panels, saving money on both installation and future energy bills.
The more people that register for the auction, the more competitive the offer Solar Together is able to secure. When the auction closes residents are sent personalised offers from the winning supplier should they wish to continue with the work.
Cabinet member for Environment and Waste, Cllr Simon Walsh said: “Having solar panels installed is one way that we can all contribute to achieving a greener and brighter future for our county- they can also help save money on energy bills and generate clean electricity too. If you have been thinking about getting solar panels- now is the time to do it. By registering with ‘Solar Together’ not only will prices be lower than on the open market, residents will also be paired up with trusted suppliers to carry out the work.”
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Registration: Residents can register from now until 22 August on the Essex County Council Website here- www.essex.gov.uk/solartogether If you register, you are under no obligation to continue.
Auction: a supplier ‘auction’ will be held on 22 August, when our approved solar suppliers will bid for the work. The more people that register, the better the deal should be for each household.
Personalised offer: from 10 September you will be contacted with a personalised offer, based on the specifications of your roof. This includes your costs and return on the investment of a solar panel installation.
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 19 October to decide and will be invited to visit an information session.
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 March 2019.
