Grants from £2,000 to £20,000 available to help you lower your energy bills!
The Business Energy Efficiency Programme (BEEP) is available throughout Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin offering FREE energy assessments and grants to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
Assessments are for SMEs who wish to use their energy more efficiently, reducing costs and improving environmental credentials. Grants worth up to £50,000 are available for eligible businesses.
How does it work?
Step 1: A free assessment offering 2 days of support worth up to £1,000 to assess your equipment, premises, processes and performance to find opportunities for improvements in energy usage.
Step 2: Following the assessment, you will be sent a report containing recommended actions. You can then apply for a grant for projects worth up to £50,000. The grant intervention rate is 40% and your business contribution is 60% for the project. For example, if your project costs are £30,000, your contribution is £18,000 and we provide £12,000.
Step 3: If your application is successful, we will require you to sign an agreement detailing the grant conditions. Once signed and returned you can carry out the approved activities.
Step 4: We will monitor your project to ensure that it is on track.
