The Solar Streets programme has been suspended as IDDEA, the company carrying out the installation of solar panels, has gone into administration. More details about why this is said to have happened and the potential remedies available for those directly affected can be found in the document below, which has been put together by IDDEA’s delivery partner The Green Group. The town council has not contributed to this document and is not responsible for the accuracy of its contents.

The Solar Streets programme was set up in 2020 to promote the installation of solar panels in Bruton and the surrounding area. The town council does not know who has used the programme, but anecdotal evidence suggests that those residents who had PV panels installed were happy with the quality, cost and performance of their installation. However in the past 18 months IDDEA appears to have struggled to deliver equipment. It is known that several residents, including one town councillor, have not received their installation and may have lost their deposit as a result of IDDEA going into administration.

If you have been directly affected, and/or want to be kept informed of the next steps, please contact councillor James Hood at

The town council has not yet had an opportunity to discuss these events. It may be that a new company offers a replacement programme at some point in future. If this happens, the council will need to make a fresh decision about whether to endorse any replacement programme.
