Community-Energy-South-LogoBrighton & Hove Energy Services (BHESCo) have joined REPOWER Balcombe and the 13 other members of  Com­munity Energy South to launch renewable energy and energy efficiency projects across Sussex.   The Peer-to-Peer community ment­or­ing fund was awarded to OVESCO in Lewes, to support the newest members of Community Energy South, groups from Rye to Chichester, with their efforts to develop clean, renewable energy projects in their communities.

BHESCo is introducing a portfolio of projects that will be financed through a clean energy supplier share launch.  The clean energy generated by our systems is purchased directly by the customer, ensuring the most efficient delivery of energy, so helping you save money.  If you know of a commercial or industrial sized roof in the area, or your business is interested in renewable energy or energy efficiency and is looking for attractive financing options for the project, please get in touch with us.

Screen Shot 2014-04-07 at 12.39.11How it works

First, we analyse your electricity consumption from your energy bills  by installing electricity sensors, tracking your electricity consumption for a period of up to four weeks.  After the tracking period is complete, we meet with you to introduce the energy efficiency measures we recommend to help you save money on your electricity bills.  Upon agreement, our team of certified installers will fit the equipment for you, absolutely free.  We will then measure the savings achieved for the same period of time to demonstrate that the products actually do what it says on the tin.

As a result of the monitoring programme, we will prepare a report of our findings and review that with you.  At that point, you can either:

  1. purchase the energy savings equipment,
  2. we can remove it for you, or
  3. you can ask BHESCo to finance the equipment using our pay as you save model.
