Solar Together Kent

Solar Together Kent launches 1st September 2020.

Buying Solar Panels made easy

Last year Maidstone Borough Council recognised the climate emergency and we’re creating a plan to reduce emissions. As part of that we will work with local residents and small businesses to help them reduce their carbon footprints.

Maidstone Borough Council is working in partnership with Kent County Council on an innovative new scheme offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage to help reduce energy bills and preventing harmful carbon emissions/ environmental impacts.

Solar Together Kent is a group-buying scheme, which brings Kent households and small businesses together to get high-quality solar panels at a competitive price.

If you already have solar panels installed you can also register to have battery storage added to your ex­isting solar panels to maximise the benefits of your system, simply select this option on the website when registering as explained below.

The scheme helps you through the process, keeping you informed at every stage

Register

You can register today on the Solar Together Maidstone website.

How does it work?

Registration

you can register before 6 October for free and without obligation on Solar Together Maidstone website. To register you simply provide details about your roof, such as its size and orientation.

Applications should be made by the property owner, with landlords and small businesses limited to 50 panels.

Auction

An ‘auction’ will be held on 6 October, when our pre-vetted solar installers will bid for the work. The more people that register, the better the deal should be for each household

Personal recommendation

from 26 October you will be emailed with a personal recommendation, based on your registration details. This includes your costs and specifications of your solar panel installation

You decide

The decision is then yours as to whether you want to accept your recommendation. There is no obligation to continue. You will have until 11 December to decide and will be invited to visit an information session.

Installation

if you accept, 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 May 2021.

Get in touch if you have any questions you can call Solar Together for free on 0800 014 8721, Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm.
