Project phase 1: Woodnewton Academy and Archway House
As part of the Harborough Solar One project, Harborough Energy set up their first solar installation at a nearby academy.
Woodnewton Academy is a learning community located on the northern edge of Corby. It was opened as a primary school in 2006 and became an academy, part of the Woodnewton Academy Trust, in 2012. The facilities cater as a nursery, reception and run through to Year 6.
Harborough Energy oversaw the installation of 57kW solar panels, spread across four of the academy’s roofs. The Harborough Solar One project has enabled Woodnewton to feel the financial benefits of a solar panel installation with no upfront cost.
Archway Health Hub is a natural health centre based on Lubenham Hill, Market Harborough. The health centre offers an extended range of services to include a hearing clinic and physiotherapy services. These have added to the natural health therapies including acupuncture, sports massage and chiropractic.
Harborough Energy has managed the installation of 10.4kW solar panels across the south-facing roofs of Archway Health Hub. The installation is part of the Harborough Solar One (HS1) scheme, meaning that it comes at no upfront cost to the health centre.
