Brighton Energy Coop fits well with Jo’s sustainability agenda: community-owned renewable energy is a great way for more local control, engagement and direction of our energy supply.
After Jo’s speech we’ll be laying our the details of Brighton Energy Coop #2, an big new solar development that will grow BEC hugely and install a significant new amount of solar PV in our area.
Investors in our second project can expect to receive a 5% return on new investments, and returns on existing investments will also be raised to 5%. Our new projects will add a further 500Kw of PV, more than trebling the size of BEC.
Look forward to seeing you there!
