Overview of the Low Carbon Workspaces grant scheme
The scheme is live and currently accepting and processing applications from SMEs in Berkshire.
The Low Carbon Workspaces scheme is ERDF funded. It offers 33% grant funding up to a maximum of £5,000 for SMEs to undertake energy efficiency projects that have a total cost of more than £3,000. These include; LED lighting, new boilers, double glazing/insulation, new efficient machinery, and solar panels.
After applying, a business’ application is submitted to the Grant Panel, who typically provide their decision within 5 days. Grants cannot be paid retrospectively so applicants must have been awarded a grant before they can place payments and undertake works. Once applicants are ready to claim and have submitted evidence of payment to their supplier(s) for eligible works, the grant is paid in arrears within 14 – 30 days.
