Environmental Benefits

Our principal aim is to cut Brighton and Hove’s CO2. We do this via a double carbon cut – installing renewables and initiating CO2-reducing community programmes.

Our solar installations will save many thousands of tons of CO2 over their lifetimes. It’s increasingly obviousl that action needs to be taken on climate change; replacing fossil fuel generation with renewables is a positive step in this direction.

We also aim to engage the community to reduce emissions. Similar community CO2 reduction schemes in Oxford have reduced domestic CO2 emissions by up to 36%.

BEC opens the door for grass roots involvement in climate change. By joining an energy co-op, anyone with the minimum investment can do something positive for the environment. We believe it’s important to increase local involvement with energy issues – in Scandinavia widespread public involvement in energy generation has been shown to catalyse environmental behaviours.
