Leading low carbon retrofit company, Energys Group, is urging Further Education colleges in England to take advantage of additional funds for investment in energy-efficiency upgrades, available from Salix Finance. The fast-approaching deadline for applications for the extended funding is the end of February 2018.
A broad range of over 100 energy-saving upgrades is covered by this round of Salix funding, and can support programmes of work that may span multiple years. Since its launch in 2014, the programme has funded energy-efficiency projects in over 50 FE colleges, resulting in estimated annual savings of over £1.6m.
Applying for the fund
Information about how to apply for the new FE College funding is available on the Salix website. We have also produced a step-by-step guide which outlines how to complete a Salix loan application. The guide contains information on the applications process and how to meet the project criteria.
“Retrofit technologies, such as LED lighting, T5 lighting upgrades and boiler optimisation technologies represent energy-saving quick wins for many FE colleges,” advises Kevin Cox, Managing Director of Energys Group.
“Salix funding provides a great opportunity for colleges to invest in these technologies without the usual financial risk.
“Anyone who needs more information in order to understand the process of applying for an interest-free loan through Salix should consider turning to a specialist organisation such as Energys for advice,” says Kevin Cox.
“There are only a few weeks left until the deadline for this round of funding and colleges will need to have all their energy data on hand to produce a quality application.”
