We have partnered with a local community benefit co-op to get solar panels on the roof of our Dorset Place building in Hastings.
Energise Sussex Coast is a community co-operative, working to tackle the climate crisis and energy injustice. They raised over £400k through a community share offer to install solar panels on community buildings in the area.
The panels roof will generate renewable energy to power HFS, giving us greener, cheaper electricity. Energise will pass any surplus electricity on to the grid to power other local homes and businesses.
This brilliant scheme means that local charities and schools are able to benefit from solar energy without investing huge sums to install the panels.
Our Hastings store has relocated to temporary premises in Priory Meadow for a few months while the Dorset Place building is being refurbished, so this is the perfect time to fit in the works necessary to fit the panels.
