The Station (Hove Park Stores) Exterior

‘The Station’ (formely Hove Park Stores) is a small to medium sized business based in Hove.

As part of our work with the Hove Station Neighbourhood Forum, BHESCo offered its advice for lowering The Station’s energy bills and reducing their carbon emissions.

BHESCo visited the store to assess the energy efficiency of the premises and conducted a review of their energy bills.  We installed an energy monitor enabling us to see exactly where the greatest amounts of energy was being wasted.

We produced a bespoke energy plan for the shop to reduce energy consumption and monthly bills.  We recommended replacing the existing refridgeration with modern energy efficient models, and replacing the lighting with energy saving LEDs.

The lease period was set at 5 years to ensure that the repayments are low enough each year to provide a real saving.

In addition, BHESCo helped the store to switch to a much cheaper energy tariff, delivering even greater savings.

As a valued customer, we will continue to monitor the performance of the new equipment, as well as reviewing the store’s energy tariff annually to ensure they are always on the best deal.

Tim Beecher, energy advice team leader, said:

“This is a great example of how monitoring individual appliances allows us to recommend changes to make huge savings on energy bills and overheads.

We can pinpoint inefficient equipment and make simple changes to reduce energy consumption and achieve a real impact to the revenue of the business.”
