Brighton Energy Coop has a long-standing partnership with Shoreham Port, one of the largest cargo-handling ports on the south coast.

BEC owns more than 2000 solar panels on Port buildings – on two large industrial sheds and at a Port-owned business centre. These systems generate a substantial proportion of the energy used to operate this crucial Sussex facility.

All BEC’s PV systems at the Port were developed by our in-house team and were built in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
