Time running out for firms to benefit from Green Business Grants

October 10, 2019

The deadline is looming for Bath’s small and medium-sized businesses to apply for grants to help them improve their energy efficiency by reducing bills and protect against future price rises.

A £1m fund has been set up by the West of England Combined Authority through which businesses across the region can apply for a Green Business Grant. The deadline for applications is Friday November 1. 

Cashback grants of £1,000-£15,000 are available for:

  • improvements to the energy efficiency of buildings – this could include insulation, heating and lighting
  • and/or purchases to improve business operations, such as electric vehicles and more efficient production or refrigeration equipment.

The grants are for 40% of eligible costs and are paid in arrears at the end of the project.

West of England Mayor Tim Bowles said: “This fund will help businesses make their buildings and activities more energy efficient. It will help protect the climate and environment upon which we and future generations depend.”

The grants are part of the combined authority’s Low Carbon Challenge Fund, which is supported with £1.7m from the European Regional Development Fund.

Green Business Grants are open to eligible applicants across Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
