and renewable energy solutions


Interest Free Money

Schools, Councils, prisons, NHS, all public Sectors, Looking to be more energy efficient?


Thanks to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), an extra £20million of funding has just been made available for public sector energy saving projects.


The aim of the scheme is to remove the upfront capital barrier that might be preventing the Public Sector from becoming more energy efficient.


"This extra money for universities, schools, local authorities, hospitals and other public organisations will help get even more energy saving schemes up and running across the country and will help the public sector to continue leading by example on energy efficiency."
Greg Barker, Energy and Climate Change Minister


Types of projects that qualify for funding
The funds are available for energy efficient projects that pay for themselves within five years through lower energy bills. There are over 120 types of energy efficiency technology that qualify. One of the ways to save up to 50%, and quickly, is to switch to our energy saving lighting.


Energy saving lighting example fora primary school, 14 hrs a day, 5 days a week, 42 weeks a year, 0.12p kWh
Cost: £5,600
Total energy saving: £264 per month
Interest-free loan repayment: £117 per month
Saving during loan period: £136 per month (saving more than spending)


How does the funding work?
It’s provided as an interest free loan. You wouldn’t start to repay it until April 2013, if you wish, and your repayments would be made from the money saved on your energy bills. Once the loan is repaid, you’ll continue to benefit from the energy savings.


When should you apply?
With a limited amount of funding, and a closing date for applications of the end of March 2012, time is of the essence! The funding is being allocated on a first come first served basis and we’d like to help you apply for it.


Not ready to start yet?
Providing your project is finished by the end of 2012, you can apply for your funding now. This way, you’ll have your interest-free funds ready to use later this year. The sooner you start your project, the sooner you’ll benefit from the energy savings!
