BHESCo is a social enterprise, meaning we’re a business with a purpose beyond just making money for the shareholders. BHESCo is a cooperative, which means as a customer, you can become a member of the company, giving you a say in our governance. Our management consists of highly qualified professionals who would rather make a difference than a profit.
Social enterprise businesses do good things to make the world a better place. BHESCo’s social purpose is to reduce the cost of energy for the community of Brighton and Hove, increase the amount of green electricity generated in the city, and reduce our carbon emissions by making our customer’s properties more energy efficient.
The 5% interest we do charge is to repay our shareholders who have generously invested their money in BHESCo, so that we can develop renewable and energy efficiency systems at no upfront cost using our ‘Pay As You Save’ model.
