Interest Free Energy Efficiency Loan Fund

Want to cut your business energy bills?

Invest NI are funding an Interest Free Energy Efficiency Loan Fund which is run by The Carbon Trust - it is a 0% interest loan to help companies overcome the hurdle of accessing finance for implementing energy efficient measures or renewable energy projects. Businesses can borrow as little as £3,000 or as much as £400,000 (subject to T&Cs and Eligibility Rules) to fund their project, at zero interest. Loans are designed so that in most cases the monthly savings on your energy bills should exceed the monthly repayments, with the repayment term being between 1 and 4 years. This really is a great time to consider reducing your costs to stay ahead of the game.

Loans are administered by the Carbon Trust on behalf of Invest Northern Ireland. For more information, visit the Carbon Trust website at www.carbontrustni.com/ni or call 028 9073 4398.
