BEC Launches THREE New Community Solar Projects – Get Involved!

Well – here it is. Today sees the kick off for the first of our new solar projects for this year: THREE new community-owned solar installations in our area.

You can help us get these exciting projects off the ground by joining BEC here. Investments receive a projected 5% interest – just as we have delivered for existing members for the past three years.

RT Page and Sons near Barnham – soon home to a 100KWp BEC solar array

The projects are on three industrial buildings in West Sussex. The first, is at RT Page & Sons, a logistics hub in Ford, near Barnham, where we plan a 100kWp installation. This solar will saves hundreds of tonnes of CO2 over the project’s lifetime – and many thousands from RT Page’s electricity bill.

The next are two nieghbours in Littlehampton: Medisort and BCMY. Both will be 60kWp installations (although we will be looking to extend BCMY’s array later in the year). Again: the energy produced will be sold to both companies at a significant discount.

BCMY in Littlehamption, which will soon – with your help – look more like this…
