Switched On Solar Service to Help Gosport Residents Install Solar Panels

Gosport Borough Council has launched Switched On Solar, an innovative service that allows you to see your own home’s ‘solar panel potential’.

The new service provides Gosport residents with a bespoke ‘solar panel potential’ report for their home. As well as this, a dedicated team will provide ongoing support along with a list of approved installers who can install solar panel systems on Gosport homes. The service can be used by all Gosport residents at no cost to them.

One of the key elements of Switched On Solar is an innovative online tool. Using their home’s postcode, residents can see detailed analysis of their home’s potential to accommodate solar panels. An automatically generated report will provide key information including:

  • estimated energy, money and carbon savings associated with a solar panel system
  • a diagram of the optimal positioning of solar panels on your home’s roof
  • a rating out of 5 for a home’s solar potential based on a number of things; roof orientation, over-shading, area and monthly electricity consumption
  • an estimated cost of panel installation and pay-back period

After using the tool, residents can arrange a call with a member of the Switched On Solar team. A staff member will be able to go through a home’s solar panel analysis in greater detail and provide a copy of the report. The team can also provide residents with a list of local Approved Installers who can quote to install solar panels on their home.

Solar photovoltaics (PV) has been identified as a key technology for hitting the council’s ambitious net zero carbon target by 2050. Switched On Solar will encourage uptake of this method of clean electricity generation in the city. It has been estimated that only around 3% of Gosports domestic roofs currently host solar panels, so the opportunity to rollout PV further is huge.

Solar is just one of a number of energy and carbon saving technologies promoted by the Switched On Gosport service. They have recently announced funding for free solid wall insulation and offer a number of other services that Gosport residents can access for free to make energy savings in their homes.
