Solar Together Essex

Find out about the solar panel group buying scheme aiming to help make the county zero-carbon by 2050.

If you live or run a business in Essex you can register for 'Solar Together Essex', the solar panel group buying scheme.

The Essex County Council scheme helps buyers through the process of purchasing high quality solar panels, offering lower prices than the open market and pairing up residents with trusted suppliers. Solar Together Essex helps residents to save money on both installation and future energy bills.

Join the scheme

You can register for free and without obligation on the Essex Solar Together website.

To register, simply provide details about your roof such as size and orientation.

How the scheme works

The more people that register their interest for the scheme, the more competitive the offer Solar Together can secure. Once the registration period closes, pre-vetted solar panel suppliers will bid for the work.

Everyone who has registered will be sent a personalised offer from the winning supplier, and then participants can decide if they wish to continue with the work. There is no obligation to continue. The scheme is run in partnership with iChoosr - a group buying specialist.


You can find more information on the Essex Solar Together website.

Or you can call 0800 048 8639. Lines are open Monday - Friday, 8am to 5pm.
