Buying Solar Panels made easy

Solar panels are a good investment. With your own solar panels you can save on your energy bills and be less reliant on energy suppliers.

If you don't use all the energy your panels generate, you can export it to the grid and earn money from it while contributing to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and a sustainable future.

Dover District Council is working in partnership with Kent County Council on an innovative new scheme offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to help deliver Kent’s vision of carbon net zero.

Solar Together Kent is a group-buying scheme, which brings households, and small businesses together to get high quality solar panels at a competitive price. 

The scheme helps you through the process, keeping you informed at every stage.
