Funding support for businesses to reduce energy bills

Funding is available for small to medium sized businesses within Woking to help reduce energy bills for business premises.

Light Bulbs

Did you know that most businesses could save 10% off their energy bills through relatively low-cost measures? (Carbon Trust). Upgrading lighting to LED for example gives a relatively rapid return on investment with potential savings of up to 60% in many cases compared to existing lighting costs.

To calculate the potential savings your business could make from upgrading to more energy efficient lighting, try the Carbon Trust’s useful lighting business case tool -

With energy bills rising, ThamesWey is currently offering a limited number of grants of up to £2,000 for smaller businesses to match fund up to a third of the cost of their LED lighting upgrades.

As funding is limited, we would urge you to contact us as soon as possible on 01483 545098 or email to check your eligibility for support.
