Solar Together Sussex

We're working in partnership with local authorities across Sussex on an innovative scheme offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage.

Solar Together Sussex is a group-buying scheme, which helps households through the process of installing high-quality solar panels at a competitive price.

Energy Company Obligations (ECO)

Under the ECO, medium and larger energy suppliers fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in British households.

We have signed a Statement of Intent, which means that under the 'flexible eligibility' element of the ECO we can seek further support for certain households whose health is put at risk by living in a cold home.
