How does solar work for apartments?

- For apartments it is possible to get a SolShare solar system - a communal solar system, bought into by you and like-minded neighbours who want to be rewarded with the numerous benefits of solar energy
- The SolShare makes sure that each connected apartment receives the same amount of solar each month, but it supplies it when you need it, maximising your savings. 
- This equal sharing means that you will receive up to 35% more solar than if you bought your own individual system, reducing your payback time. 
- Another benefit is that it’s installed alongside your existing electricity meter infrastructure, so you retain the right to choose your energy retailer
- You also don’t need everyone to sign up, so you can bypass any naysayers.
