"For the benefit of our customers"

Solar Energy

Thousands of homeowners are generating their own electricity and getting paid a tax free and inflation proofed income to do it. Returns are guarenteed for the next 20 years. To find out more click here.


Community Energy

Many home roofs are not suitable for solar panels. They face the wrong way or are shaded from the sun. But anyone can invest in community power schemes and still generate income from solar panels.

GREEN HEAT

Thanks to a new Government scheme we can now offer subsidy payments on the installation of heat pumps. If you currently use oil or electricity to heat your home or office please contact us. 


For our Customers

Every customer of Basingstoke Energy Services Coop (Bes Co-op) can become a member of the co-operative.  This includes anyone who buys a solar PV system from the co-op. It costs £1. Becoming a member means you have a vote on how the co-op is run and what we do with the profits.  We operate on a one member one vote basis.  So everyone gets an equal say.

You are also entitled to share in the profits of the co-op. So at the end of the year you get a cheque from the co-op as a "thank-you" for being a customer.

We also want some of our profits to go back into the community. We have sister co-op - The Basingstoke Community Energy Fund - this is a co-op for the benefit of our local community. All members can vote on how much we re-invests in community projects.  For example we may want to put a solar PV system on the roof of a local school.  Any profits can be invested in developing our social enterprise, growing our membership or returned to our members as a dividend payment allocated by the level of trading with us in each year.

Bes Co-op is an Industrial and Provident Society that is run for the benefit of its customers.  Each customer holds an equal share in the enterprise and has equal influence over how the co-op is run.  It is not possible for anyone to buy a larger stake and have a greater say in how we are run.  Every member of our co-op is entitled to one vote on each motion at our AGM.  In this way we decide who runs our Co-operative and how any surplus is invested or distributed.
