Bedford Borough Council, in partnership with Central Bedfordshire and Luton Councils has launched Solar Together Bedfordshire, a scheme to encourage residents to come together to invest in renewables through a group-buying scheme for solar panels and battery storage.
Solar Together Bedfordshire helps homeowners feel confident that they are paying the right price for a high-quality installation from pre-approved installers.
This 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.
The scheme offers solar panels with optional battery storage and EV charge points, as well as retrofit 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.
It is free to register and there is no obligation to go ahead with an installation. Bedford Borough Council is working in partnership with Central Bedfordshire and Luton Councils, alongside independent experts iChoosr, to make the transition to clean energy as cost effective and hassle-free as possible.
Mayor Dave Hodgson said “Registration for this year’s Solar Together Bedfordshire closes on Monday 13 June, so if you are interested please do visit www.solartogether.co.uk/bedfordshire to find out more and register. There is no obligation to go ahead with the installation if you register.”
