Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is pleased to announce that it is supporting the next phase of the Solar Together scheme.

Along with local authority partners across Cambridgeshire and in conjunction with independent experts, iChoosr, residents will profit from group-buying power to find a competitive price on high-quality solar panels and battery storage. By installing this renewable technology, homes will benefit from saving money on energy bills, reducing their CO2 footprint, and helping the environment.

Executive Councillor for Operations and Environment, Councillor Marge Beuttell, said: "We are pleased to once again support the Solar Together scheme in Huntingdonshire, following a previous successful run.

"The scheme allows residents in Huntingdonshire to access solar panels and storage for their homes at a competitive price. It is giving the option local homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint and, just as the District Council has been doing over the last few months with our decarbonisation work."

Registration of interest in the scheme opens on Monday 7 February and closes on Tuesday 15 March. Since 2012 the Solar Together scheme has partnered with over 160 councils to carry out multiple energy switching schemes per year. Further information can be found by visiting the Solar Together Cambridgeshire website.

Through the Solar Together scheme, 225 households across Huntingdonshire have had applications accepted, which amounts to 2,356 solar panels being installed so far. HDC is committed to the target of net-zero carbon across Huntingdonshire by 2040 and is also working on a refreshed Environment and Climate Strategy, with aims to protect, enhance, and restore existing nature areas (green spaces) and create new ones, ensure existing and new communities see real benefits in their well-being from living in Huntingdonshire.
