Energy bills wasting away thanks to a low carbon grant
A village hall installed 2 new boilers & a modern thermostat thanks to a Low Carbon Workspaces grant, reducing energy waste and saving £600.
Thanks to support from Low Carbon Workspaces, which delivered a £3,500 grant, Farnham Royal Village Hall replaced an old boiler with a new ‘A’ rated version that will reduce consumption by 15%, and installed modern thermostatic controls that can be operated via an online app and could reduce natural gas consumption by a further 5%.
Electric vehicles now funded with Low Carbon Workspaces
Low Carbon Workspaces grants of up to £2,500 can now be used towards the cost of purchasing an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle for your business.
Low Carbon Workspaces grants are available on top of the Plug-In Car and Van Grants available from government. This means, for example, if you purchase an eligible electric car for £20,000 you could receive grant funding of £4,500 from government and £2,500 from Low Carbon Workspaces maintained by an emergency plumber, meaning you would only pay £13,000.
To be eligible for the grant there must be a quantifiable fuel and emissions reduction against current business journeys. Grants are also available towards purchasing a pre-owned electric vehicle.
