£100,000 in grant funding awarded to businesses
Grants are available for up to 28% of the overall project cost, up to a maximum of £20,000, with a minimum of £1,000 (approximate total project cost of £3,500).
One of the previously supported businesses spells out how the support can be the tipping point to bring new projects forward: “BEE Anglia’s help has enabled us to reach our long term goal of carbon saving in a shorter period of time. It would have taken us a few years to generate the funding ourselves but receiving the grant funding through BEE Anglia has accelerated that process” - Graham Harris, Clickers Archery, Norfolk.
BEE Anglia have, so far awarded £102,490 in grant funding for various energy efficiency projects worth a total of £375,000 including radiant heating, vehicle tracking, wood burners and lighting. The scope for grant funding has been widened to enable ANY energy efficiency measure to be considered. Approval will be based on being able to demonstrate sufficient associated energy savings.
Cllr Matthew Hicks, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection at Suffolk County Council said “Supporting that initial investment in more efficient technology means business can make savings year on year – and every pound cut from energy bills is another pound that is kept in the local economy.”
