SALIX Energy Efficiency Funding
Does your MAT or academy qualify for a SALIX loan?
The Salix Energy Efficiency Fund (SEEF) was set up in partnership with the ESFA to offer interest-free government funding to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills in the public sector.
The fund is available for academies, including those in MATs, who are looking to reduce utility bills through the adoption of energy efficiency programs or renewable technology.
Your project can be simple or complex, for example:
- Heating controls,
- LED lighting
- Boiler/heating system upgrades
- Solar panels
The main criteria for applications is that your project must pay for itself within eight years through savings on your energy bills. However, if your project doesn't quite meet the eight-year criterion but you have capital to put towards it to make up the difference, then you can still apply to the SEEF.
