An incredible year in which we've doubled in size and scale
December 2019 Newsletter
2019 has been a fantastic year for BHESCo.
We have completed twelve community energy projects in twelve months, doubling the size and scale of our assets.
We have installed a great variety of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies, including solar PV systems on four local schools and a Baptist church and renewable heat in an historic well-being centre in Lewes.
We’ve attracted 129 new shareholder members and raised a £323,810 to fund our projects .
Our Energy Saving Service has delivered efficiency surveys to 136 properties, and assisted around 530 vulnerable consumers with their fuel bills.
We have been recognised for our pioneering work with three prestigious industry awards, and we can't wait to begin work on several innovative new projects in 2020.
We are incredibly proud of everything we have achieved this year and have created a special 2019 Impact Report to celebrate our accomplishments in what we hope is a fun and visual format.
Thank you all for your continued support. We hope you have a wonderful festive season, and we wish you a fruitful and rewarding year ahead.
