We work with property owners in Sussex to help them meet their energy 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 needs.
You receive a detailed report identifying all the ways you are wasting heat and energy and how we can fix it quickly.
We recommend the most cost-effective solutions for your property, and oversee the installation at no upfront cost using our innovative ‘Pay As You Save’ initiative.
Our customers include care homes, hotels, schools, leisure centres, housing associations, churches, small businesses and domestic properties.
Our Unique 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.

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 clean energy within reach of every property owner in England
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
Recent regulations in the housing 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.
Benefits For Homeowners
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.
Benefits For Business
Effective environmental and facilities management forms the basis from which to run any succcessful organisation – regardless of size or sector.
This will ensure you meet the financial, regulatory and stakeholder expectations of your business, as well as helping you attract and retain the best customers and the most talented and motivated staff.
