We mentioned in our last newsletter that the Carbon Trust is offering grants of up of to £10,000 for systems installed by accredited installers like SunGift.

We’ve had a huge amount of interest in the grant and we’ve since installed and commissioned our first grant-funded systems. But, because the uptake of the grant has been so good and funds are limited we’d urge you to get in touch quickly if you’re interested in the grant. We’d originally understood that funding would last a couple of years. We then heard they’d last until the end of the year. It’s possible they’ll run out sooner so please do let us know if you’re interested.

The grant’s available for SME’s, schools and charities. The amount you can claim will depend on the projected savings of the system we design for you.

The grant’s available for businesses installing LED lighting, as well as solar PV. Lighting costs can contribute a surprisingly large chunk to your electricity bill. Often, payback periods for LED systems are less than 2 years and the Carbon Trust grant will fund up to 30% of the cost of the system.
