Buying Solar Panels made easy

Update on Current Solar Together Kent Phase

The current phase of Solar Together Kent has seen the highest number of registrants ever. More than three times the number of people expected to take part have signed up.

Due to record demand for solar installations the maximum capacity for the number of installations possible was met on 4th May 2022.

Therefore, due to this increase in demand,  the decision period is now closed and accepting your personal recommendation is no longer possible.

This is to relieve the pressures on the installers by overloading them, which would result in delays and frustrations for you the customer- something we want to avoid.

If you are interested in hearing about future schemes please contact the Solar Together team by either completing their contact form or calling 0800 014 8721.


Solar Together Kent 

Solar panels are a good investment – enabling you to 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 whilst helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and contributing to a more sustainable future.

Dover District Council is working in partnership with Kent County Council on the second round of Solar Together Kent, offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to help reduce carbon emissions/ environmental impacts.

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

If you already have solar panels installed you can also register to have battery storage added to your ex­isting solar panels to maximise the benefits of your system, simply select this option on the website when registering as explained below.

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


Planning Permission

Installations will generally not need planning permission. However, in some cases, such as in Conservation Areas and on Listed Buildings, planning permission may be required. For further information please click here
