|Residents can now save money on solar panels with the help of a new scheme.
Crawley Borough Council is working in partnership with local authorities across Sussex and Solar Together Crawley on an innovative new scheme, offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage.
Solar Together Crawley is a group-buying scheme, which brings households together to get high-quality solar panels at a competitive price, using iChoosr – an independent group-buying specialist, which has been organising schemes since 2008. The council previously worked with iChoosr, helping residents save up to £200 on their annual energy bills.
Solar Together Crawley aims to remove any confusion and support residents throughout the process, keeping them informed at every stage:
This scheme also applies to small and medium-sized enterprises who can apply in the same way.
Councillor Gurinder Jhans, Cabinet member for Environmental Services and Sustainability, said: “This is a fantastic, tried and tested scheme that will enable residents to access greener energy for less. Navigating the purchase of solar panels can be confusing, but this makes the process easier and more straightforward, ensuring residents get the best deal available.
“Even if you’re not sure at the moment, I would encourage as many residents to sign up as possible.”
Jacqui Weller, who lives in Bewbush, said: “Our solar panels are absolutely brilliant, we’ve significantly reduced our carbon footprint and as an added bonus, saved money on our bills. They are well worth the investment and I can’t recommend them enough, everyone should get them!”
