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.

Basingstoke and Deane in line for up to £200,000 of Government grants.

Basingstoke Energy Services Co-op (www.bes.coop) has just won major grant funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change in a national competition. The funding will allow Bes Co-op to identify buildings in the Borough that could benefit from the installation of the latest renewable energy technology. DECC will then provide further funding for the installation of the technology. Up to £200,000 could be available.

The initially funding is aimed at finding 30 to 40 households in the borough that would most benefit from using the newest types of renewable heating eg heat pumps and/or solar thermal panels. These householders would then receive a grant to install the chosen technology. The grants will be up to a 40% discount off the normal price.

These technologies use solar power and “free” heat in the ground and air to heat people’s homes at low cost and with lower or no carbon footprint.

Martin Heath from Bes Co-op said “This is great news for the Borough; out of over 630 districts in the UK only 40 have been chosen to receive the funding. This basically means we can give 30 or 40 people in the area up to 40% of the cost of installing heat pumps and solar panels. DECC has over £8 million available to give away. This could amount to more than £200,000 worth of funding for Basingstoke. And it gets better – as well as the 40% discount - these new technologies will reduce a home’s heating bill by up to 50% when combined with the right insulation.”

Andy Molloy added “Heat pumps and solar thermal panel technology are the cheapest way of heating many of our borough’s homes.  It’s far cheaper than oil or LPG and is better than electricity. About 10 -20% of the homes in the Borough could benefit from using them. All we need to do now is find the 30 people who want to save money on their fuel bills this winter!”.

Martin also said “Not only does this technology save money but solar energy is zero carbon and reduces all of our carbon emissions making the town a cleaner place to live. What we want to do now is to find the 30 homes that want to receive the discounts.”

Anyone interested in receiving the discounts should contact Bes Co-op on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by calling 01256 810172. However DECC do have some eligibility criterion that have to be met but these are not onerous.The funding is part of a national Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme (RHPP). This provides large grants to both householders and businesses that want to install new renewable heat technologies such as biomass boilers, solar thermal panels and heat pumps.

The funding won by Bes Co-op is part of the 2nd stage of the scheme aimed at installing renewable heat technologies in areas that do not have gas supplies, or have high levels of fuel poverty.

RHPP is being replaced later in the year by the renewable heat incentive (RHI) which pays people to generate heating for their homes from renewable and low carbon sources. More information can be found here.

Basingstoke Energy Services Co-operative is a local company owned by its customers for the benefit of its customers.  Bes Co-op installs a variety of renewable energy technology including solar panels and heat pumps. As a co-operative it is owned and managed by its members (the people of Basingstoke). Its profits are ploughed back into the Community and are distributed back to customers.
