Islington Council is committed to helping local businesses improve their environmental performance and reduce their operating costs. It created the Energising Small Business grant scheme for small businesses and organisations in Islington, which offers grants of up to £1,500 for works that will improve energy efficiency, such as LED lighting or a new boiler. The scheme has already helped several organisations in the borough to reduce their energy consumption, with some reducing their lighting costs by over 50% and achieving savings as high as £1,000 a year.
One successful applicant to the scheme told us “The application process was quick and easy and the turnaround time to receive the grant was very fast. The council representative was very supportive and I received the grant quicker than quoted. The energy grant has had a positive influence to my business and I highly recommend it.”
The grant scheme is open to any business or organisation located in Islington with fewer than 50 staff and a turnover of less than £10m. The funding will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply soon if you are interested.
Please email the Energy Services team by or call 020 7527 2349 if you have any queries.
N.B. This is not a ZEN grant and is only open to businesses in Islington.
