At Harborough Energy we want to keep energy costs low for Harborough residents. The price of energy is predicted to rise quite sharply over the coming years. By setting up viable local energy projects we can insulate our area from these uncertainties. In doing so we can also provide extra income for landowners and landlords as well as new investment opportunities – with the possibility of inflation busting returns.
We believe that it’s time to create sustainable energy at a local level because:
- We get clean, cheap energy
- Investors get good returns (typically 2 – 9%)
- Landlords, building owners and landowners get additional income
- The community gets a fund to support community efforts to heat and power homes more effectively
- And the added bonus of bringing down our Green House 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 has been made possible by Sustainable Harborough – a project funded through the Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Communities Living Sustainably’ programme, working with householders, businesses and local producers to raise awareness of sustainability in the community. The organisation offers practical support to individuals and groups who want to reduce their carbon footprint and enhance the environment in which they live and work.
