Through the installation of an 80kW biomass boiler, BHESCo is saving a family-run environmental research business, which transforms agricultural waste into paper pulp without causing any harm to nature, saving £120,000 on their fuel bills and preventing 1,200 tonnes of CO2 entering the atmosphere over the next 20 years.

KSPI 2 - Cost savings for local schools community and business buildings

The installation of a 4kW solar array, an air-source heat pump, external roof insulation, secondary glazing and LED lights for a small business in the North Laines is saving 6 tonnes of CO2 per year and £16,000 on energy bills over the next 20 years.

KSPI 3 - Educational benefits for schools

BHESCo is providing a school with heating generated by an air-source heat pump and electricity generated by a 27kWp solar PV system. Not only are they preventing 12 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year, they are also providing hands-on learning to their pupils about the necessity to take action to avoid devastating climate change.

KSPI 4 - Tackling fuel poverty in the local community

The Energy Saving Service that BHESCo launched in January 2016 has now provided surveys, help and advice to 670 households, giving them the information and the technology they need to live a life with consideration for the environment.
