Delivering community-owned renewable energy for Lewes and Sussex
Ovesco is a community benefit company run by local volunteers for the local community in East Sussex
WHAT WE DO
We develop community-owned renewable energy in the Lewes district and, more widely, in East Sussex. We aim to reduce our local carbon footprint and lower our dependence on imported energy in partnership with schools, businesses and local people.
Sunny Solar Schools coming soon!
We are currently doing feasibility studies for the installation of PV panels at 13 schools as part of our new Sunny Solar Schools project. We hope to make the community share offer public in October 2017.
If you are a school in East Sussex and would like to participate, please contact as soon as possible.
Quotes from partners and investors:
“A more environmentally friendly approach to energy consumption was something our students had pushed hard to achieve.
We are impressed with the ongoing partnership which has been forged between the school and OVESCO including the support for The Ashden Award.”
“The live readings from our solar panels, along with individual pupils taking responsibility for turning off lights and equipment demonstrate how substantial savings in cost and CO2 terms can be made.”Steve Green
