Solar Streets is coming to Bruton, Castle Cary and the surrounding area

Have you ever thought about getting solar panels for your roof but not known where to go or who to trust?

Solar Streets is a community and Bruton and Castle Cary Town Council partnership with IDDEA and the Green Group to bring discounted solar PV to Bruton, Castle Cary and the surrounding area (within 5 miles of the centre of Bruton or Castle Cary).

For more information see: 

IDDEA's offer is a 12 panel 4kWp system from £4,000. Smaller and larger systems are available with add-ons such as batteries for storage of electricity and iBoost to heat water. The standard offering features black 340Wp panels.

IDDEA has already completed around 70 installations in partnership with Frome Town Council up the road in Frome and are running a similar scheme in St Albans and district. They are MCS-certified with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme.

Benefits to the environment: Installing solar PV reduces CO2 emissions and increases the amount of renewable energy installed in our area, helping Bruton get closer to a target of being Zero Carbon by 2030. According to the Energy Saving Trust a standard 4kWp, 12 panel system saves 1.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

Benefits to our community: £50 will be given to a community fund for every domestic solar installation and a minimum of £100 for a commercial installation to be used towards green projects in our community.
