Reduced energy costs and CO2 emissions for community organisation – 06/11/12

The Core

Henry Boot Construction’s Renewables Division, Tropo, has helped community-focused organisation ‘The Core’ in Barnsley to reduce its energy costs and CO2 emissions with a cost effective solar PV system.

Tropo was awarded the contract by CRT Renewable Energy Ltd (a subsidiary of the Coalfields Regeneration Trust) who funded the project and will be responsible for the ongoing maintenance of the solar PV system. 

The solar PV system will provide free electricity for the next 25 years to The Core, which is owned and managed by Voluntary Action Barnsley.

Built in 2008 as part of the Remaking Barnsley Initiative, The Core is a modern and vibrant building in the heart of Barnsley offering a range of office accommodation and conference facilities. 

“We are pleased to be working with Voluntary Action Barnsley to assist their longer term sustainability. The solar PV installation at The Core is one of over 20 such installations on community buildings across the English Coalfields regions, as part of our renewable energy investment programme.“
