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

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


Note: In order to simplify the structure, reduce costs and reflect changes in directors, Harborough Energy is in the process of closing down as a limited company – the vision and push towards increased community owned clean energy will continue through Harborough Solar One!

At Harborough Energy we want to keep energy costs low for residents in and around Harborough. The price of energy is expected  to continue to rise over the coming years. By setting up viable local energy projects, we can insulate our area from these uncertainties – and keep fossil fuels in the ground. In doing so, we can help reduce energy costs for landowners and landlords, as well as, provide new investment opportunities – with reasonable returns.

We believe that it’s time to create sustainable energy at a local level because:

  • We produce clean, cheap energy
  • Returns are designed to attract long term community investment
  • Landlords, building owners and landowners get reduced energy costs
  • The community gets a fund to support community efforts to heat and power homes more effectively
  • Keeping fossil fuels in the ground and reducing our Greenhouse Gas emissions

The energy creation projects will vary, take a look at our ongoing projects. Each one, however, needs to be commercially viable as well as being attractive to investors and the wider Harborough community.

Harborough Energy was created via Sustainable Harborough – a project funded through the Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Communities Living Sustainably’ programme (up to December 2017).  Sustainable Harborough initiated a number of projects with householders, businesses and local producers to raise awareness of sustainability in the community.  It provided practical support to individuals and groups who wanted to reduce their carbon footprint and enhance the environment in which they live and work.
