Each project is assessed by the BEC team to ensure they are suitable to deliver a return sufficient to cover operations, maintenance, capital repayment costs and 5% interest.

New Projects and Schools

Brigton Energy Coop is working on and developing a number of new projects and school projects in 2019. 

Brighton Energy Coop is a Brighton and Hove City Council approved contractor to roll out free solar on the city’s schools. Schools can now host solar panels at no cost, and save significant amounts on their electriciy bills each year. A similar arrangement between Brighton Energy Coop and Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA), saved the Academy £5800 in 2017.

Carden Primary School

Tucked in a high corner of Brighton’s Hollingbury, Carden Primary School’s south-facing roofs are a great home for Brighton Energy Coops proposed 240kWp solar system. Their locally-owned green energy system will build on the school’s already strong links with the community, and provide clean power to 400 three to eleven year olds.

Lady Bee

Bees need Solar power! Brighton Energy Coop's seven-year partnership with Shoreham Port will soon see two additional installations: the Lady Bee Business Centre, and Maritme House with 90 and 30 kWp solar systems respectively. Brighton Energy Coop worked with Shoreham Port for many years now, and these systems will add to the community-owned solar at Hove Enterprise Centre and Sheds 10 and 3a.

Grand Parade

The Grand Parade is the fourth of Brighton Energy Coops ongoing partnership with the University of Brighton. Grand Parade will be a 60kWp solar system, and join community-owned systems on the University’s Varley Halls of Residence, Hillbrow Sports Centre and Robert Dodd library rooftops.

Coldean Primary School

Coldean Primary School is home to 370 four to eleven year olds, and another pioneer of Brighton and Hove City Council’s solar schools program. The new 60kWp solar system will provide a fine decoration for the school’s roofs, and will sit just up the road from Brighton Energy Coop's 3-year old solar system at Varley Halls, part of the University of Brighton campus. Let’s get solar on Coldean’s roof!
