Carbon Trust Loans Available To SME’s

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint With Carbon Trust Loan

0% Interest on Loan For All SME's

What Is The Carbon Trust Loan?

An interest free (0%) loan that most businesses (SME businesses) can apply for to reduce your carbon footprint and of course… reduce your bills.  The loan is to be used for funding the costs of replacing or installing energy efficient equipment.

Lighting Equipment, for example!! 🙂 When you consider that electricity bills are spiralling upwards and businesses are folding due to higher fuel costs and reduced turnover since the recession hit.  Imagine if you could reduce your bills by £4,800 per year like Hyne Town House did.  Part of Hyne Town House’s project included the replacement of light bulbs to low energy efficient equivalents.

The reduction in energy costs can be phenomenol.  Most small business premesis utilise approximately 30 bulbs (some less, but some businesses use many more).  Some retailers have over 100 50+w lamps scattered around the store.  If each of those bulbs are using 50w then that would burn a total of 5000watts.  Replace those bulbs with 3w led lamps and the total burn would decrease to just 150 watts.  A massive 97% reduction!!  Imagine Your bills!!

The loan has to be paid back of course, but your savings continue well after the loan is paid back… and you’ll be saving the environment.

Who Qualifies For The Carbon Trust Loan?

  • Any SME (Small to Medium Sized Enterprise/business) in the private sector that has been trading for at least 12 months.
  • England, Scotland or Wales – based SME (larger businesses can also apply should they not qualify for the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme)
  • Any Sized business based in Northern Ireland is eligible
  • Energy bills – your total bill needs to be greater than £50,000 per year. (This includes Heating, lighting, air conditioning – see table below)

EU Definition of an SME is:

  • Less than 250 full time employees
  • Annual turnover less than €50m and/or assetts less than €43m
  • A larger business (a non-SME) has no more than 25% share of the business.

What Can I Use It For?

Building Technologies Industrial Process Technologies
Air conditioning Compressed air fittings
Boilers and heating controls Motors
Boiler and hot water tank information Materials handling equipment
Building insulation Power factor correction
Heat recovery Process heating
Lighting Process controls
Pipe insulation Refrigeration
Solar thermal systems Variable speed drives

Each project will be assessed on its potential to deliver real energy savings. The Carbon Trust will also need to carry out a credit check. Technical support is available for more complex projects.

If you don’t have a specific upgrade in mind, the Carbon Surveys can help you to identify potential energy saving projects.
