Energy saving is high on the government’s agenda and there are a number of financial incentives available to help you make the move to cheaper, more environmentally-friendly lighting.
Energy Efficiency Loans
SMEs in England or Scotland and all businesses in Wales that have been trading for at least 12 months could borrow from £5000 to £200,000. Loans are unsecured, interest-free and repayable over a period of up to four years. There are no arrangement fees and applying is straightforward.

Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECAs) enable businesses to buy energy efficient equipment using a 100% rate of tax allowances in the year of purchase. Businesses can claim this allowance on the investment value of energy efficient equipment listed on the Energy Technology List. The procedure for claiming an ECA is the same as for any other capital allowance.
