    I recently received a letter from Solar Together / Surrey County Council regarding the opportunity to purchase PV panels through their process.

    Essentially, Solar Together captures all interested parties in an area and negotiates a discount with a few key PV suppliers on our behalf.

    As of now I have expressed and interest with no commitment, but I wondered if anyone had any experience of Solar Together (or similar schemes), or has heard any feedback.

    Initial thoughts I have are:
    1. who pays Solar Together? if it is the end consumer (i.e. me) this may bump up the cost. Paying a middleman means discounts have to be good

    2. there may by cheaper smaller suppliers not on their list - if they just request the large suppliers to pitch then they may get a good deal from them, but it won't necessarily be the best deal on the mkt

    Any comments welcome!

    is it supply of panels only or complete systems and is installation part of it also?

    it's a complete installation - but I'm after any feedback on this scheme

    Read carefully the details !

    There is a similar sounding scheme in Hampshire.
    Here, if you sign up to it - you have to pay £150 up-front before they send a surveyor out.

    That is to put-off the "something-for-nothing" time-wasters.

    In a way that is quite reassuring, because one never gets something-for-nothing.
    In general, I fear that "free survey" really means "invite us in, so we can give you the hard sell and empty your wallet".
