There are just seven days left for Hertsmere residents to register to be part of a tried and tested renewable energy scheme to help save the planet and cut their energy bills. Residents are being encouraged to come together to invest in solar panels and battery storage through a group-buying scheme, Solar Together, being brought forward by Hertsmere Borough Council in partnership with other Hertfordshire local authorities and independent experts iChoosr. Householders can register online to become part of the group for free and without obligation. The scheme offers solar panels with optional battery storage and EV charge points, as well as retrofitting of battery storage for residents who have already invested in solar panels and are looking to get more from the renewable energy they generate, as well as increase their independence from the grid. Registration closes on Tuesday 27 September, when an auction of pre-approved UK solar PV suppliers will take place. Pre-approved UK solar PV suppliers participate in an auction on Tuesday 27 September. They are able to offer competitive pricing as the volume and geographic concentration makes it possible for them to realise greater efficiencies, which they pass on with lower prices for installations. After the auction, registered households will be emailed a personal recommendation which is specific to the details they submitted in their registration. If they choose to accept their recommendation, the specifics of their installation will be confirmed with a technical survey after which a date can be set for the installation of their solar PV system. Telephone and email helpdesks are on-hand throughout the whole process which, together with information sessions, will allow households to make an informed decision in a safe and hassle-free environment.
The innovative scheme builds on four years of the highly successful Solar Together programme run across the UK. To date, Solar Together has delivered over 7,000 installations and over 130,000 tonnes of avoided lifetime carbon emissions.
