Thinking about purchasing Solar Panels but not sure where to start? Liverpool City Region Combined Authority have launched Solar Together, a group-buying scheme for solar panels and battery storage.

As energy prices soar and the cost-of-living crisis worsens, the scheme is designed to help people to more easily install solar panels that will help lower their bills for the future.

The scheme will enable home-owners in Wirral, as well as other areas of the city region, to buy solar panels and battery storage that not only help them to cut energy costs but will also help reduce their carbon emissions. There is also an option to have electric vehicle charging points fitted for those with electric cars.

Solar Together Liverpool City Region aims to reassure homeowners that they are paying the right price for a high-quality installation by providing those who use the scheme with access to a list of pre-approved installers. The scheme is also open to small and medium-sized enterprises and places of worship.

The project builds on four years of highly successful Solar Together programmes run across the UK. To date, Solar Together has delivered over 7,000 installations – that’s the same as 130,000 tonnes of carbon emissions that have been avoided over its lifetime.

Residents can now join the group-buying scheme which offers solar panels with optional battery storage and Electric Vehicle charging 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.

It is free to register and there is no obligation to go ahead with an installation. The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is working with independent experts iChoosr, to make the transition to clean energy as cost effective and hassle-free as possible.
