COMMUNITY ENERGY KICK START PROJECT - RESIDENTS QUESTIONNAIRE

Why are we doing a household energy survey in your neighbourhood?

Hove Station Neighbourhoods Forum has joined up with local not for profit Brighton and Hove Energy Services Company (BHESCo) to deliver a Community Energy Kick Start Project which will promote home energy efficiency and local renewable energy generation.
This questionnaire will help us to understand your energy needs and identify opportunities to help you reduce your energy bills.
The project has been funded with support from UK Power Networks.
