£9.2m available for small businesses and buildings around North East Lincolnshire
The Smarter Energy Greater Lincolnshire program is making £9.2m available for small businesses and buildings around North East Lincolnshire to save money with energy efficiency, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The aim of the North East Lincolnshire Council program is to prevent the release of thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions into the environment while reducing businesses’ energy costs.
“We will be working with small and medium businesses as a one-stop-shop for all their energy efficiency needs. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to get advice and training on how to save money, as well as giving grants towards any improvements that need to be made,” the program manager Helen Norris said.
The project is aiming to provide training for 400 businesses over the next three years, and award grants or vouchers to a further 169.
Businesses can apply for up to 38% of any changes to be paid for by the program, such as upgrading their boilers and lighting systems.
HeatingSave – the most cost-effective solution for energy efficiency improvements
Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave energy and boiler management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.
HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.
The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
