Group buying scheme for solar panels and battery storage

Solar Together Kent is a solar panel and battery storage group-purchase scheme. It allows residents and small businesses to install solar panels on their homes and businesses at an affordable price.

Solar panels can help you save money on energy bills, as well as reduce your carbon footprint. You can also choose to install battery storage to help you use more of your generated electricity.

Any homeowner, landlord, or small business in Kent is welcome to register: Applications are limited to 50 solar panels per property.

If you already have solar panels installed you can apply for battery storage to maximise the benefits of your existing solar panel installation.

How Solar Together works

  1. Registration is quick, free and there is no obligation.
  2. Auction of pre-vetted installers bidding against each other to offer the best deal.
  3. Personal recommendation based on your registration details.
  4. You decide if you want to take up the recommendation and proceed with an installation.
  5. Savings on electricity, after installation, by generating your own renewable electricity.

Planning Permission

Solar PV installations are considered a 'permitted development' and will generally not need planning permission. However, in some cases, such as in conservation areas and on listed buildings, planning permission may be required. For planning advice, please contact your local planning department:

Installation

If you apply and accept your recommendation, the supplier will contact you to survey your roof and set an installation date.

We expect all installations to be completed by November 2022.
