Access Local Funding for Solar Panels

An investment in renewable energy helps to reduce business overheads, improve energy security and enhance sustainability. It’s a decision that many businesses throughout the UK are taking.

If your company is being held back from investing in green energy, you may be able to access Government funding. The Energy Transformation Fund and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) are just two Government funded schemes that are providing funding for UK businesses.

Current Local Grant & Funding Opportunities
