Energys urges schools and colleges to use fund to invest in efficiency

The rising cost of energy and inflation means that now is the time to invest in energy efficiency, and specifically, upgrades to LED Lighting, according to Energys Group.

The company is urging business managers in maintained schools and colleges to reap the cost efficiencies that upgrades to LED lighting can offer. “This is often the easiest way to save money and cut carbon,” says Energys Group Account Director, Raj Gunasekaran. “Doing nothing is likely to impact on operational costs and may well affect your staffing budgets.”

To support schools at a time when a combination of energy price rises, inflation and rising operational costs are increasing rapidly, Energys Group has announced a multi-million pound Energy Efficiency Fund for Maintained Schools. The company provides cash positive funding programs as well as full turnkey solutions and has implemented successful energy retrofit projects at over 1000 schools.

“Our Energy Efficiency Fund for Maintained Schools is specifically aimed at educational establishments that want to improve their energy efficiency – but can’t afford them using CapEx Budgets,” adds Raj. “Energys has designed its fund in a way that no upfront payment is needed. And funding is available to all types of maintained schools.”

For schools and colleges interested in this scheme, Energys say it will start the process by identifying your potential energy savings. The company offers a free no-obligation lighting audit.

Audit process

During the audit, Energys will also identify measures to see if the school meets eligibility criteria for the Government-backed SALIX Decarbonisation Grant scheme (PSDS). This funding scheme is due to open in September 2022. Energys has previously delivered PSDS projects in over 70 schools with a project value of £6 million.
