About Energise Sussex Coast share offer
This is the first community energy investment offer in Hastings. Energise Sussex Coast, in partnership with Brighton Energy Coop, are raising £180,000 through community shares to fund 250 kilowatts of solar panels (roughly 1066 panels as it happens) on East Sussex College. The college will save roughly £4250 per year on its energy bills.
The offer is open to anyone but we are especially keen to invite as many local residents, local businesses and community organisations as possible to invest in the future of the college and Hastings.
With the transformation of the energy market underway we hope that excess power generated during weekends and holiday periods can be sold to local residents in the Ore Valley at affordable prices.
