Before the energy market was liberalised in 2003, there were 13 energy suppliers. Now there are only six major suppliers serving 99% of us. This has reduced competitiveness in the market and increased prices. BHESCo has been founded to highlight to the community of Brighton and Hove that there is an alternative to this, reducing over expenditure on fuel across the city and making homes in the city more energy efficient. The alternatives include switching supplier to gain a better rate, making your home more energy efficient and supporting community energy projects, decreasing your dependence on fossil fuels and the Big Six companies. These services make up our 3 tier model.
Unfortunately there are barriers to these alternatives, such as being afraid to switch supplier, but BHESCo can provide advice and help to overcome such barriers.
