I am delighted to inform you about the Solar Together scheme which has launched across the region this week. I attach full details of the letter sent out through the direct mail, press release and flyer (scroll down for the South Gloucestershire flyer it is the final one).

Solar Together is a group buying scheme for solar panels targeted at able to pay residents via a direct mail out.

It would be wonderful if you can help to promote the scheme to your residents. Please find attached a poster and flyer to help with promotion (scroll to final page for South Gloucestershire versions). I have also attached the letter sent out to residents via a direct mail and the news release that accompanied the launch.

The scheme is targeted at residents primarily but is also open to businesses and town and parish councils and other organisations who own their property up to a maximum of 50 panels.

Applicants have until the 28th September to sign up for the scheme.

Most solar schemes are classed as permitted development but if you are in a listed building or a conservation area please visit the website for more information on planning requirements.

For full details please visit the page on our website:

Best wishes

Lucy
