Press Release

9 February 2021

Solar Together Scheme Launched

Fareham Borough Council is joining forces with iChoosr, independent experts in group-buying schemes, to launch a new scheme to provide cleaner, greener and more sustainable power for Fareham residents.

The innovative ‘Solar Together’ programme offers high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage. It is a group-buying scheme, which brings Fareham households together to get high-quality solar panels at the most competitive price possible.

Residents can register for free, without obligation, by providing details about their roof, such as its size and orientation. An ‘auction’ will then be held on the 23 March 2021, where pre-vetted solar installers will submit bids for the work.

The more people that register, the better the deal should be for each household and the installer with the most competitive package will win the auction.

Following the auction, residents who have registered will be provided with a recommendation to best suit their roof specifications and associated costs. There is no obligation to continue and residents will have until the 21 May 2021 to decide.  An installer will only contact those who accept the offer to then survey the property and set an installation date.

Executive Member for Planning and Development, Cllr Simon Martin commented: “Reducing our environmental impact has rightly become a key focus for many Fareham residents. That is why Fareham Borough Council has teamed up with iChoosr to deliver this scheme to provide solar energy options to households for the best possible price. It is a step in the right direction for ensuring Fareham has a greener and more sustainable future.” 

For more information, visit where you can register for the scheme and get in touch with the Solar Together helpdesk. The independent Solar Together Team can help residents through every stage of the process and keep them informed.
