“I am very proud to be part of a not-for-profit, community energy co-operative such as BHESCo, whose ethos is to put people and planet first, beginning at the local level. Tackling fuel poverty and empowering the community by reducing energy bills, increasing home energy efficiency, investing in vital renewable energy projects, and being a democratically controlled, community-owned co-op, is the heart of what we’re about.”

He brings over ten years of experience to the team, and is dedicated to ensuring that BHESCo is able to deliver only the highest standards of service to our members and our community.

“I am thrilled to be a part of such a pioneering social enterprise at BHESCo.

It seems like every day we achieve another small success for the people of our city”.

Jessie-Mae Coleman, Bookeeper and Administration Assistant

Jessie spent over 15 years in the retail sector, mostly in management positions, before a redundancy made her re-evaluate her goals. She enrolled in college in 2010 and qualified as an Accounting Technician in 2012.

Over the next few years Jessie worked as a freelance bookeeper while balancing the demands of motherhood.

In January 2016, after years of serious issues with her energy provider, Jessie approached BHESCo for help and support. Over the course of several months, BHESCo resolved the dispute with the energy company as well as installing energy saving measures in Jessie’s home. In addition to improving comfort and reducing carbon emissions, BHESCO also helped Jessie to switch her energy supplier and save an estimated £300 a year on bills.

In November 2016 BHESCo was delighted to offer Jessie a postion as a bookeeper and admin assistant.
