BHESCo will be setting up an Energy Desk at the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton on Saturday 17th January.
We will be giving expert advice about reducing energy costs, including cost effective ways to keep your home warm, checking whether you are on the right tarrif, and what support you can expect from your supplier.
Bring along your fuel bills so we can check them and see if you are paying a fair amount, and if not we will suggest ways to put this right.
Alongside our energy desk, in the next room, will be the Repair Cafe. If you have something that needs repairing, such as clothing, equipment or bicycles, and you are thinking of throwing it away, bring it along and get help and advice about giving it a new lease of life.
BHESCo’s Energy Desk will run from 10am – 2pm. The Repair Cafe runs from 11.00 am – 1.00pm
