Buying solar panels and battery storage made easy

We are committed to making Newham carbon neutral by 2030 and building a sustainable and resilient future for all Newham residents.

As part of this commitment, accelerated efforts to achieve affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy supplies for all residents are needed. One way this can be achieved is by increasing the number of residents with solar panels and battery systems. To make this more affordable we have teamed up with the Mayor of London to offer high-quality, great value solar panels to homeowners through the Solar Together London scheme.

Solar Together Newham is an innovative new scheme offering high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage. This group-buying scheme brings Newham’s households together by offering high-quality solar panels at a competitive price, helping you through the process and keeping you informed at every stage.

Partnered with independent experts in group-buying, iChoosr Ltd, we are now able to bring this opportunity to Newham’s homeowners.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need Planning Permission? Solar PV installations are considered a 'permitted development' and will generally not require planning permission. However, in some cases, such as in Conservation Areas and on Listed Buildings, planning permission may be required. For planning advice please visit or contact the Planning Team at

What if I 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.
