The sun shines for West Norfolk homeowners who can go greener and reduce bills with solar energy
A new community led initiative will help boost local renewable energy generation, cut carbon emissions, and save on energy bills. Residents are coming together to invest in renewables through a group-buying scheme for solar panels and battery storage.
Solar Together Norfolk (www.solartogether.co.uk/kings-lynn-and-west-norfolk) 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 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.
West Norfolk residents can now join the group-buying scheme which 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. Letters will be sent out to homeowners from 5 September highlighting this scheme.
It is free to register and there is no obligation to go ahead with an installation. The borough council is working in partnership with other Norfolk district councils and independent experts iChoosr, to make the transition to clean energy as cost effective and hassle-free as possible.
Cllr Paul Kunes, Cabinet member for Environment and CO2 reduction said: “We have a deep and firm commitment to taking actions that will reduce our own impact on the environment and support others to do the same. In June we held our successful climate change business expo, now the focus turns to how our residents can play their part.
“The more people that participate, the better the price we can secure, and the more renewable energy will be generated by west Norfolk residents.
“I urge homeowners to register for free and without obligation online before the deadline of 27 September 2022.”
How does it work?
As well as registering online, residents can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 086 8960 for more information. Telephone lines are open Monday to Friday from 8am until 5pm.
Marie-Louise Abretti, iChoosr UK Solar Manager added –
“With energy prices continuing to increase, residents of west Norfolk are looking for opportunities to reduce their carbon emissions, save on energy bills and increase their independence from the grid. The Solar Together group-buying scheme offers a straightforward way to make an informed decision and to access a competitive offer from a trusted, vetted provider.”
iChoosr has a strong track record of delivering group purchase schemes for local authorities. It has worked with 160 UK local authorities on its collective energy switching schemes. Furthermore, in 2018 UK councils, in collaboration with iChoosr, initiated their collective purchase schemes for solar PV systems. iChoosr’s schemes have been delivered in partnership with local authorities in five countries. Over 70 schemes led to 110,000 residents installing solar PV systems.
The Solar Together programme is part of a range of schemes available to help reduce residential carbon emissions including boiler upgrade scheme, ECO flexible energy, Norfolk Warm Homes and more. You can see the full list of what is available to residents on the borough council website, here:
