Deadline extended for energy-saving upgrade funding applications

Special schools have been encouraged to take advantage of a deadline extension on Salix funding applications for energy-efficient upgrades.

The original deadline was 20 March, but Salix is still accepting applications until all the funding has been allocated.

It has funded upgrades in 50 special schools since 2004, with energy-efficiency projects totalling more than £1m.

The new fund is specifically designed to target problems of energy inefficiency in special schools.

Energys Group managing director Kevin Cox said: “This fund is a great chance for special schools to make much-needed savings on their energy bills without the risk of capital outlay.

“Special schools may find it useful to call on an external energy consultant to help them compile the correct information for their funding applications. Energys has helped numerous schools and academies to take advantage of Salix funding in the past to achieve significant energy savings.”

Special schools can apply for funds with a minimum application and loan value of £5,000. There is not a maximum loan value.
