Solar Panel Schemes - Don't Get Conned

Don't get conned by anyone calling about installing solar panels on your roof and saying they are from Cornwall Council. At the moment, Cornwall Council is not running running or supporting any current solar PV schemes on private housing.

Residents in Penzance have been called by someone pretending to be from the Council and advising about grants that may be available to install panels. A company called Sunseeker UK then made a follow-up call.

Solar panels may be a good idea for many householders in Cornwall because of the amount of sun we get, but at the moment the Council is not organising grants or surveys for private households.

This has been reported to Trading Standards for investigation.
