179 solar panels save cash

SOLAR panels could be installed on more buildings in Henley owned by the town council.

SOLAR panels could be installed on more buildings in Henley owned by the town council.

A year ago, 179 black-framed panels were fixed to the Over-60s Club in Greys Road car park and the Henley outdoor sports centre and Exclusively Ladies fitness centre, both off Reading Road.

The installation cost £55,604 but the energy produced by the panels saved the council almost £6,000.

Energy consumption at the Over-60s Club has been reduced by 32 per cent compared with the year prior to installation.

Councillor Ian Reissmann called the results “great” and said the council was in negotiation with English Heritage about reviving plans to put solar panels on the town hall and was looking at other buildings too.
