What We Do

We empower property owners in Sussex to meet their needs with efficient buildings and clean, affordable, community-owned energy.

How we do this?

We survey your property and examine your energy bills to gain an in-depth understanding of your consumption and needs.

You receive a detailed report identifying all the ways your property is wasting heat and energy as well as our suggestions on the most cost-effective solutions.

Following the survey you may wish to engage BHESCo to project manage the installation of your recommended energy measures.

We will tender the project to our trusted network of experienced energy technology suppliers to ensure you receive a competitive quote.

If required we can assess the suitability of your energy improvements for our ‘Pay As You Save‘ finance initiative.

We will make all arrangements for the installation of your chosen measures, and continue to monitor your equipment to ensure the expected savings are achieved.  

Our customers include care hotels, schools, leisure centres, housing associations, churches, small businesses and domestic properties.

Why should you choose BHESCo to improve the energy performance of your home or business

Our work is focused on helping people make the best use of their energy supply, allowing them to reduce expenditure and contribute to a healthier environment at the same time.

The outstanding quality of our technical knowledge guarantees that our customers benefit from the most effective method of meeting the cost of the energy they use.

Our finance model helps people to own the equipment that’s installed and play an active role in making the best choices for their property.

Applying our technological skills in energy efficiency measures and our expertise in renewable energy within an economic framework, we help to stop millions of pounds worth of energy literally going out of the window.

Our work drives down the cost of energy — slashing bills for residential, commercial and business properties alike.

Fossil fuels are dirty fuels – using them adversely affects the air we breathe, the water we drink, our weather patterns and the animals and plants which sustain us. This is not sustainable and we cannot afford to destroy the very elements that keep us alive.

Our affordable ‘Pay As You Save’ financing puts green energy within reach of every property owner in England

BHESCo's unique 'Pay As You Save' finance initiative

We make our service available to you at zero upfront cost, and repayments are made using our ‘Pay As You Save’ initiative.

This means that you will start to see savings immediately. A portion of the savings you make from your energy bill repays the cost of the installation. Once repaid, you will get the full financial benefit of your savings.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

Recent regulations in the rental market have greatly increased the importance of having an up-to-date and accurate EPC.

When selling a property an EPC must be presented to the buyer.

From April 2018, all rented properties must meet government issued Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) or they will be ineligible for new lettings.

BHESCo energy surveyors are fully qualified to issue new EPCs if required.

Energy saving in the home

Retrofitting your home with energy efficiency measures will drive down the cost of monthly bills and enhance warmth and comfort levels, as well as having a positive impact on health and wellbeing.

Improving the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will also increase property value and ensure regulatory compliance if renting the property.
