HDC is delighted to be working with newly formed resident-led group Community Energy Horsham to install energy efficient photovoltaic (PV) panels on council-owned buildings.
CEH comprises a group of Horsham District residents who have linked up with Energise South and Energy4All which have the technical and financial expertise to deliver locally generated, renewable energy solutions such as solar roof panels on commercial and community properties. Under the Community Energy Horsham business model, finance is raised from local investors to pay for the purchase installation and maintenance costs of the solar panels. #
The Bridge Leisure Centre, at Broadbridge Heath, has been identified as an eligible property for the installation of solar panels under this scheme and it is proposed that it is used as a pilot for the partnership. If The Bridge project is successful, other suitable council-owned properties will be identified in the future
