Community Benefits

Brighton Energy Co-op is a democractically-owned, local network of like-minded people. Based on a sound business model we contribute to sustainable communities and strengthen community bonds.

By owning our own energy-generating capacity we increase self-sufficiency and enhance our own energy security. In an age of peak oil and rising energy prices, locally owned generation makes us less reliant on elements outside our control.

In taking an active ownership role members get a well-rounded business education and form a powerful voice for advocacy. And since renewable energy tends to cluster around early innovators (i.e. Bavaria) Brighton Energy Co-op also positions Brighton and Hove as a national leader in solar.
