About Us

Since 2012 NYCC Energy & Sustainability Service has been helping schools save money and reduce carbon emissions.

Our unique combination of providing access to supply contracts, bill validation, ensuring statutory compliance and delivering Environmental education has resulted in the schools that take our Packages using 8% less energy than those who don’t

This website provides new customers with an insight into what we can offer and for existing customers to access resources, help and advice via our log in pages.

Even before 2012 we were delivering this service to schools as free at point of use so we have over a decade of experience.  Our team have a wide knowledge and experience of working with schools, community groups and small business to help you deliver financial and carbon savings on your utilities use.
