Solar Together Kent is a group buying scheme to get solar panels for your home or small business at a competitive price.

The Solar Together scheme will:

  • help you through the process
  • keep you informed at every stage
  • offer you savings on the installation of solar panels for your home or small business.

We are working in partnership with Kent County Council on this innovative scheme. It will offer high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to help deliver Kent and Medway's vision of carbon net-zero.

With solar panels, the average household could reduce its annual carbon emissions by 0.74 to 0.94 tonnes each year.

The Process

There are 5 steps in Solar Together Kent's scheme:

Step 1: Registration

Registration is free. The scheme launches on 7 February 2022. You can pre-register now and you will be contacted when the scheme launches. 

Pre-register for the Solar Together scheme

You must register before 15 March 2022. You can register without any obligation to buy. 

To complete registration, you will need to give some information about your roof, such as:

  • size
  • condition
  • orientation.

Step 2: Auction

On 15 March 2022, approved solar installers will bid for the work in a reverse auction.

The most competitive offer from these installers will win the auction to complete the work. 

Step 3: Personal recommendation

From 4 April 2022, you will be contacted with a personal recommendation.

This will be based on the specifications of your roof. Your recommendation will include the costs and specification of your solar panel installation,

Step 4: Decision

Once you have your recommendation, it is up to you to decide if you would like to go ahead with the installation.

You will have until 13 May 2022 to decide. You will be invited to an online information session before the deadline to help you decide if it is right for you.

Step 5: Installation

If you choose to accept your recommendation, the winning installer will contact you to carry out a survey of your roof.

They will set an installation date with you.

All installations are planned to be completed by October 2022.

Climate change and solar energy

Climate change is happening. We must take action ourselves to steer the future of our world in a greener and more sustainable direction. The sun provides a clean and unlimited source of energy, unlike fossil fuels such as:

  • oil
  • gas
  • coal.

By generating solar energy with a solar panel system, you're actively contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions and a greener future for us all.
