Our Community Energy Projects

Since 2012 BEC has raised more than £1,500,000 from the local community to build some of the largest solar PV systems in the area.

Over the last five years BEC has been increasing our solar capacity dramatically. We’ve built two or more new community-funded solar systems each year. Through 2017 we continue to raise funds and build new local solar PV systems. See all our projects below (or check out the red markers on the map)

New for 2017!

Brighton Energy Coop’s latest project is in partnership with the University of Brighton at the UoB’s  Eastbourne Campus. BEC aims to install community-funded solar at two buildings in Eastbourne: the Hillbrow Sports Centre (centre) and the Robert Dodd building  (right), adding to the 17 other PV systems we’ve build locally in the last five years.

These systems will provide the University with clean, green energy year round. By joining BEC you’ll help build projects like these in Eastbourne – and many others. Members earn 5% interest on investments and help support more locally-owned renewable energy.
