Greater Brighton Met College’s Central Brighton Campus received a free solar system which will reduce the college’s carbon emissions – as well as their fuel bill, saving an estimated £7,500 per year.

This is the 3rd free solar installation Greater Brighton MET College (GBMC) have had from Brighton Energy, this time on their Central Brighton Campus on Pelham Street in March 2021. 

Four months ago the College’s West Durrington campus received a 60kW solar system; now members of the local co-operative – Brighton Energy Co-op – have funded a further 120kW solar system, which comprises 267 state of the art 450W solar panels for the Central Brighton campus. These are twice as efficient as panels being produced 2 years ago.

These solar panels have been installed on two of the college’s Pelham Street roofs. Brighton Energy’s installers, Genfit, did a great job of getting the system installed, tested and commissioned on time and with an estimated saving of around £7,500 per year GBMC couldn’t be happier.

“We have worked closely with Brighton Energy over the last year to install solar PV on our sites in Worthing and Brighton.  Brighton Energy have been helpful, responsive to our requirements, and really straightforward to work with.” John Rollings – Chief Operating Officer GBMC

Through Brighton Energy Co-op’s innovative ‘community funded’ solar systems on local schools, colleges and universities BEC is the largest solar energy producer in the South East region, and now produces 3% of Brighton’s electricity

BEC Chairman, Will Cottrell, said: “We feel educational facilities in particular deserve our support with rising energy costs right now.”

Brighton Energy Co-op Projects are funded by local people who want to see more clean energy produced for their community.  Anyone can become a BEC Member by purchasing shares in the Co-op.  The funds are then used to purchase and install the solar panels and produce cleaner, greener electricity.  After sparking off Brighton & Hove’s first ‘community owned renewable energy’ project in 2010 Brighton Energy Co-op has been continually bringing green electricity to the national grid.
