What We Can Do
We work in the Brighton and Hove area to help make energy affordable to the local community, by offering a range of money-saving and energy-saving services. We have outlined here some of the best ways in which we can support you, working towards our goal to ensure all can have access to clean, sustainable and affordable energy.
Warm Home Discount
We offer free and informative advice regarding the warm home discount offered by some energy suppliers. This plan offers a discount of £140 to some eligible customers so you can save over the winter period.
To be eligible you must be receiving means-tested benefits alongside one of some other requirements which can be found here: https://bhesco.co.uk/blog/warm-home-discount. For more information you can call us on 0800 999 6671 for free advice.
As an organisation we are dedicated to finding the best possible energy deals for all UK households. We advise shopping around and avoiding standard tariffs, which are the set tariffs an energy supplier will give you as a default. Fixed tariffs are usually a better and cheaper alternative.
We can also offer advice on which energy suppliers offer the best customer services and which should be avoided.
Priority Services Register
This is a service provided by the UKPN (UK Power Networks). They provide extra support for those who need it in the case of a powercut. The application form to apply for this support can be found here: https://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/internet/en/help-and-advice/priority-services-during-a-power-cut/priority-service-register-application-form/.
This can provide you with extra care and support in the event of a power cut such as hot meals, a dedicated priority telephone service, and even an overnight stay in a hotel.
Free Home Survey
In partnership with the Brighton & Hove City Council, BHESCo offer free surveys for energy improvements to local homes. This increases access to information about saving money on energy alongside improving living conditions by tackling issues such as damp and cold. We then offer crucial support in identifying the cause of these issues and taking action to fix them.
Since 2016, BHESCo has helped to collectively save £50,000 on energy bills for those living in the Brighton & Hove area.
If you have any questions give us a call on 0800 999 6671, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for free, impartial advice.
