Apply for free solar panels

The scheme is operating on a first-come, first-served basis until September 2021 only.

Portsmouth City Council has been awarded funding through the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme to offer fully funded installations of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels. In addition, all solar PV installations will be offered fully funded insulation measures* (where appropriate) to help you further reduce your household energy bills.

Apply today using the form at the bottom of the page. 


Why should I get Solar PV?

Solar panels convert solar energy from the sun into green and free energy for your home.

Installing solar PV panels on your home can help to save you money on your electricity bills and cut down your home’s carbon emissions. An average property could expect to save around £200 a year on their electricity bill, and 400kg of carbon dioxide emissions.

Watch our handy short video to understand more about how solar panels work:
