£250,000 grant pot to make local businesses greener

A £250,000 grant pot of Government cash is to be used to help businesses invest in low energy technology – protecting the environment and jobs.

Up to £10,000 will be available to North Lincolnshire businesses looking cut their carbon footprint and embrace a more sustainable future.

The Sustainability Business Grant can be used to invest in energy production infrastructure such as solar pv panels or biomass boilers and building improvements including insulation and heat pumps.

It can also be used to buy energy efficient products including LED lighting and low energy equipment such as fridges and dishwashers.

Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “The Council is committed to being carbon neutral, and this massive injection of Government money will help our businesses go a long way towards achieving that.

“We all want a greener, cleaner future for the planet, and we can achieve that by putting North Lincolnshire at the cutting edge of sustainable technology.

“This grant is not just aimed at our larger industries – small businesses can make a big difference just by replacing their light bulbs or buying A+ rated appliances.”

The grant announcement comes after a £75,000 investment in start-ups was launched last week, giving eligible businesses up to £1,000 to get up and running.
