By installing solar panels and generating zero carbon electricity at home, the average household could reduce their annual carbon footprint by approximately one tonne each year and do their bit towards making the Horsham District carbon neutral by 2030.

Are you thinking of getting solar panels, but not sure where to start?

Solar Together Sussex offers high-quality solar panels and battery storage to people across both the Horsham District and the county of West Sussex.

This eco-friendly initiative is run in partnership with councils across Sussex and iChoosr as a group-buying scheme, which brings households together to get high-quality solar panels at a competitive price.

The scheme has returned for 2021 after more than 1,000 local households registered for the first round in 2020.

Register free of charge by 28 September

There is no obligation to buy when you register your interest. A supplier ‘auction’ will be held on 28 September when approved solar installers will bid to supply solar panels to all the households who have registered their interest, with the most competitive bid winning. The more people who register, the better the deal should be for each household.

Those who have signed up to the scheme will then need to decide if they want to accept the recommendation and quote. There is no obligation to continue. They will have until 26 November to decide.

If the recommendation and quote is accepted, the winning supplier will be in contact to survey the roof and set an installation date.
