Leicestershire County Council declared a climate emergency in 2019 and was working hard to reduce carbon emissions, long before then. Looking forward, as part of the county council’s drive to be a net zero authority by 2030 and a net zero county by 2045 cutting carbon, reducing waste and boosting biodiversity is built into our operations and services.
As part of these ambitions, Leicestershire County Council has partnered with all the local district and borough councils and independent experts in group-buying, iChoosr Ltd, to bring this opportunity to Leicestershire’s homeowners.
Solar Together Leicestershire is an innovative new scheme offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage. It is a group-buying scheme, which brings Leicestershire households together to get high-quality solar panels at a competitive price, helping you through the process and keeping you informed at every stage.
Solar PV installations are considered a permitted development and 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 planning advice please contact your local council, as householder applications should be made via them, not the county council.
Do 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.
