Interest free loans under Big Business Refit Programme

Carbon Trust extends loans

Release date: 12/11/2009

The Carbon Trust is set to launch a new programme they claim will help thousands of UK SMEs to reduce their energy bills by a combined 40 million.

Their Big Business Refit initiative provides firms with expert advice and access to interest-free loans to replace old, inefficient equipment with new, environmentally-friendly models.

Through their long-standing Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme, the Trust offers SMEs (plus large companies in Wales and Northern Ireland) funding ranging from 3,000 to 400,000 to upgrade their equipment.

The fund currently has 100 million worth of loans available, a sum expected to help up to 3,000 businesses cut a total of 40 million off their annual energy costs.
