We want to help everyone in Sussex who is concerned that energy costs are swallowing up more of their disposable income. The way the energy industry works prices we pay for electricity and gas are fixed by six energy companies who control 95% of the market. By generating our own energy, we can reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, reducing our energy costs. If you happen to live or work near Hove Station, please contact us, because we have an exciting campaign on now to help you save money on your energy bills.
You can switch to Ecotricity as your energy supplier.
We have partnered with Ecotricity because we share the same values, creating locally generated, clean renewable energy by UK owned companies to put people and planet before profit. By switching to Ecotricity now, you will be buying electricity that is 100% generated by nature (not fossil fuels). Once you switch, we get a commission, which we invest in direct assistance to people struggling in the cold by sealing draughts, providing insulation , or free energy assessments. If you are on a key meter and you switch to Ecotricity, you will be happy to know that you will not pay any more than anyone else for your energy. Our studies have shown that people on key meters pay up to 30% more for their electricity than people on direct debit.
The time is right for looking at energy as a product with economic value. We offer a pay as you save model, meaning you pay nothing upfront. We manage the project from start to finish, helping businesses to generate their own renewable energy, by installing the most appropriate system on their premises. We conduct energy assessment, recommending solutions to reduce energy consumption and oversee the installation of these as well.
For many years the ‘Big Six’ energy companies have been in control of the supply of energy to 99% of us in the UK. At BHESCo. we feel that there is and should be an alternative to this inequitable situation. We are a social enterprise, with the experience to establish a community energy supplier, to bring people together in a collective action to force the energy companies to supply us cheaper prices. Instead of paying ever increasing gas and electricity bills, BHESCO customers join forces to buy energy together and therefore get a better price. Instead of the profits going to shareholders, we reinvest our money by making our customers homes more energy efficient through insulation, better boilers, draught proofing etc, and we install renewable energy micro-generation at our customer’s property. Any resident of Brighton & Hove and Sussex who feel that it is time to take a different approach to the way we buy energy, joining 1000′s of people together from across the city to group buy energy gives us a stronger voice than when we buy individually Currently the prices we pay for energy are fixed by the big six energy companies who control 99% of the market. By joining together we can negotiate a better price for all of the residents of Brighton & Hove.
