Solar Panels will be installed on the Oakwood Centre during the week of 2 December. This is the next step in Woodley Town Council’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.
Scaffolding will be in place along the sides of the building between 2 – 7 December to facilitate the installation.
The project will be delivered in partnership with Reading Community Energy Society and will produce renewable energy back to the grid, while providing a low, fixed rate for daytime electricity for the duration of the contract (20 years).
Panels were installed on Woodford Park Leisure Centre in January 2019 as part of the project. The electricity generated so far has an equivalent carbon saving of 6.5 tonnes.
