Here to provide affordable, local energy for Harborough residents
We are Harborough Energy...
   




Creating sustainable energy projects in and around Market Harborough.
Community energy

We are Harborough Energy. We have been helping to provide affordable, clean energy to communities in and around Market Harborough since 2014.

  • Our local energy projects offer community investment opportunities that help keep fossil fuels in the ground, as well as reducing energy costs for land and property owners who host our installations.
  • We also have links with Harborough District Council and other councils in the region to help tackle fuel poverty by improving awareness and access by eligible residents to ‘Warm / Healthy Homes / ECO Flex’ funding.

We are helping to give Harborough more control over its future energy costs and surety of supply – making it an even better place to live.


Climate Crisis action and Retrofitting home energy efficiency measures

We all face the consequences of the Coronavirus pandemic and the climate / environmental crisis.  This impacts on our activities whilst spurring us on to do more sooner.  We are ensuring that Harborough Energy and Harborough Solar One continue to operate satisfactorily and in compliance with our governance structure and rules.

  • Our admin is provided by a local support company (MyAdminSupport) – including supporting our meetings, invoicing and monitoring our Harborough Energy email.
  • The 170 kW of community owned solar PV installations at our host sites are monitored regularly to ensure they are producing electricity as expected.  We work with our hosts to assist them as best we can to maximise the benefit to them and the community that has funded our systems.

We are also keen to accelerate the carbon reduction, fuel poverty relief and retrofit measures that are so urgently needed – especially as fuel prices continue to rise rapidly and zero carbon targets draw nearer.
