Affordable solar panels for Haringey residents
A new solar panel scheme will allow Haringey residents to reduce their carbon emissions at an affordable price.
Solar Together London is part of the Mayor of London’s Energy for Londoners programme which aims to help cut air pollution and CO2 emissions by supplying more of London’s homes and businesses with cleaner, locally produced renewable energy.
The scheme brings together households and local government to provide high-quality solar panels at a highly competitive price. Following a successful first phase earlier this year, 11 councils have signed up to Solar Together.
Residents and small businesses can register for the opportunity to buy high-quality panels to generate their own renewable energy, using a group-buying model to unlock significant savings.
Nearly 4,000 households registered their interest with the first phase of the scheme, with more than 1,100 accepting a personalised offer for more affordable solar panels, and installations have now started.
Haringey Council Cabinet member for Environment, Cllr Kirsten Hearn said:
Haringey Council is committed to providing our residents with innovative and alternative solutions to reduce their carbon footprint. We are delighted to work with the Mayor of London to deliver a scheme that will both save our residents money and reduce their energy consumption.”
Residents are invited to register online for free and without any obligation by August 22. An auction will then take place between pre-vetted UK solar PV suppliers to provide the winning bid. From September 10, registered households will receive a personalised offer from the winning supplier. If residents decide to take up their offer, the installation of their panels will take place from October 2018 to March 2019.
Register for Solar Together London before August 22.
