Carbon Trust Funding

WHY LCS ENERGY ARE CARBON TRUST ACCREDITED

LCS Energy has been approved by the Carbon Trust since the inception of the Green Business Fund. And we do it, we have been vetted, had our credentials checked and our Green Business Fund projects have been followed up by the Carbon Trust. They have all proved to save our customers money and energy.

WHAT IS THE CARBON TRUST GREEN BUSINESS FUND?

An incentive for businesses to invest in energy-saving technologies, The Carbon Trust Green Business Fund provides an attractive and accessible support package to help small and medium-sized companies in England, Wales and Scotland identify energy saving opportunities and install energy efficient equipment in their business. As part of our Carbon Trust Accreditation, LCS can help qualifying businesses with up to £5,000 in funding from the Green Business Fund against the total CapEx of eligible projects.

THE BENEFITS

As a Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier, we can deliver energy saving projects which could be part-funded through the Capital Contributions available. The Capital Contribution is a non-repayable grant of up to £5,000 – or 15% of the total project cost – from the Green Business Fund to our customers. This support is only available when using a Carbon Trust preferred supplier. We are an accredited provider in recognition of the track record of delivering high-quality energy reduction projects.

WHO QUALIFIES?

A qualifying SME is defined as meeting two of the following three criteria. Those being a business having no more than 250 employees, an annual turnover does not exceed £25.9 million, or an annual balance sheet total assets do not exceed £12.9 million.

HOW IT WORKS

It’s quite simple; the LCS Energy team will provide you with all the information required to complete your online application. Once in receipt of your Capital Contribution offer, our team will implement the project. Following the installation, you will need to provide the Carbon Trust team with evidence of the new equipment installed at your site, along with a copy of the final LCS invoice and a commissioning certificate. The Carbon Trust will then transfer the Capital Contribution to you

IT’S CARBON TRUST FUNDING, IT’S FOR ENERGY SAVING, IT’S COST EFFECTIVE.
