Go Green Widcombe: IDDEA Solar Panel Bulk Buy Discount Update:
Since we gave the update on Go Green Widcombe’s Bulk Buy Solar Panel Agreement with IDDEA, in the Winter edition of the Widcombe Magazine, we have been informed that the discount is no longer a minimum of 15%.
Due to the massive increase in energy costs, the demand for Solar Panel installations has sky-rocketed, according to UK Government data installations up to 4kW have more than doubled. This has led to issues with getting key components and, not surprisingly, a large increase in equipment costs. Consequently, IDDEA have had to revise their prices. This has resulted in the Bulk Buy Discount being reduced to 10%.
If you’ve applied for an installation by IDDEA in the past month then you’re almost certainly on the new 10% discount rate. However, if you applied earlier than that you’ll have to check with IDDEA to find out whether you’re on the 10% or the 15% discount rate.” Any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
