2016: “It Was a Very Good Year…”
The last twelve months have witnessed incredible expansion and change here at BHESCo. Our team has doubled in size compared to this time last year, prompting a recent relocation to a larger office space within the Brighton Eco Centre. We raised £270,000, which we continue to plough into new community energy projects.
We have completed eight clean energy projects this year, including our largest project to date at the Montessori Place school in Uckfield.
Our Energy Saving Service that was launched in January 2016 has now completed over 200 domestic and commercial energy surveys. We are now authorised to issue Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and our application for a consumer credit licence was approved by the FCA.
It is always nice to be recognised for the work we do and we were humbled to receive several awards for our work in the community, which included a day out at the Houses of Parliament.
Being a relatively small team, there is no way we could possibly have achieved so much this year without the invaluable contributions of our many dedicated volunteers, and of course without the belief and community spirit of our members. Thank you everyone who has helped make BHESCo’s dream a reality – we wish you all a wonderful Christmas, and look forward to reporting again soon on the exciting new projects and programmes we have lined up for 2017!
