Clock ticking on green grants for public sector

Power supplier E.ON says public sector organisations are not making full use of the green grants available to them.

The Government has announced that the Low Carbon Building Programme, which offers 50 per cent grant on low carbon technologies such as wind turbines, biomass boilers and heat pumps, will end in June 2009.

To highlight this, E.ON is writing to thousands of public sector organisations to tell them about the deadline and to offer help and advice on securing the considerable funds still available.

E.ON is one of two energy suppliers accredited under the Low Carbon Building Programme, phase two of which helps public sector businesses fund their low carbon technology.

Schools, hospitals and Housing Associations could all be eligible for a government grant.

Richard Scott, Head of Marketing for Sustainable Energy Solutions at E.ON, said: “We’re committed to changing the way people view and use energy in the UK.

“We’ve supported many schools and housing associations with applications to the Governments 50 per cent Low Carbon Building Programme Grant, but are expecting many more as the deadline approaches.”
