Lower bills, cleaner energy — solar panel offer for Hackney’s homeowners

A new scheme offering high-quality, competitively priced solar panels is helping homeowners in Hackney generate their own clean energy and save on energy costs as part of the Council’s drive to reduce fuel poverty and tackle the climate emergency while rapidly decarbonising the borough’s buildings.

Solar Together London - part of the Mayor of London’s Energy for Londoners and Hackney Council’s Green Homes programmes - makes buying solar panels accessible and affordable by allowing homeowners to buy collectively with others across London and benefit from the lower prices that group-buying brings.

Homeowners simply need to register their interest and wait to receive a personal recommendation from an approved solar panel provider, following a London-wide auction with suppliers submitting their lowest prices - giving assurance that they are buying high-quality solar panels for great value, installed by vetted suppliers.

Installing solar panels helps homeowners use energy from a sustainable source, reducing their dependency on carbon-intensive grid electricity and gas contributing to a reduction in global warming carbon dioxide and methane emissions emissions, and lowering energy bills from year one.

Cllr Jon Burke, Cabinet Member for Energy, Waste, Transport and Public Realm
From cutting our carbon footprint in half by 2030, to establishing our own renewable and cleaner energy services company and using 100% renewable electricity from 1 April 2020 Hackney Council is doing everything it can to tackle the climate emergency.

 

A big part of this commitment is supporting and enabling our residents to boost local renewable energy generation and accelerate the shift to a zero carbon world, and we know many of our residents want the opportunity to reduce emissions in their home.

Solar Together London is giving homeowners this opportunity - offering the chance to invest in solar panels that they can be confident are a high-quality, great-value way of reducing bills and using cleaner energy
