Solar panel scheme reduces residents' carbon footprint

A solar panel installation scheme for Camden residents has launched to support residents in reducing their carbon footprint and addressing the global climate emergency.

During the Council’s recent Citizens’ Assembly on the climate crisis, (the UK’s first Citizens’ Assembly on the climate emergency) the most popular suggestion made by residents, was for solar panels to be fitted on as many homes as possible. In response to this the council are working in partnership with the Mayor of London to deliver ‘Solar Together London’, a new scheme to help residents purchase low-cost, high-quality solar panels.

Joanna Macrae, a Camden resident who had solar panels fitted earlier this year, said:

“Solar Together helped me to get solar panels on our roof much more quickly, easily and cheaply than I would have been able to do myself. Being part of this scheme meant that I could benefit from the power of a bigger, collective procurement and made sure that the installation happened on time.”

Anyone in Camden can sign up for free to register interest (by October 22) with no obligation, for the solar panel group buying scheme. The more people that register, the better the deal for each household.
