Solar together Essex: a new campaign for clean energy
Registering for Solar Together Essex is quick and easy – interested customers simply provide details about their roof size and orientation. The more people register, the better the deal for each household or business. An auction will be held on 23rd March where pre-vetted installers submit bids. The most competitive package will win the auction. Everyone who has registered will be sent a personalised offer, providing installation costs and return on investment of the solar panel installation. There is no obligation to continue to purchase and residents will have until the 21st May to decide.
Solar Together Essex is one of the activities that Essex County Council is delivering as part of the Empower 2.0 project. The estimate is that Solar Together Essex will result in more than 500 new solar PV installations in the County. The scheme is a step towards reducing carbon emissions as part of Essex County Council's commitment to become a net zero County by 2050.
