The story so far
In January 2013 the National Lottery funded "Sustainable Harborough", a project established in Market Harborough with the aim of creating projects to support each other to bring about a more vibrant, inclusive community with lower carbon emissions. A focus on energy (and particularly community owned energy) was always intended to be a key area of work towards the aims of the project.
One of the early events initiated through Sustainable Harborough was an Energy Forum which brought people together to discuss what they wanted to achieve in and around Market Harborough and how they could start working towards a more sustainable Harborough. From this forum Harborough Energy was created and has started to create local energy projects such as Harborough Solar One.
