LED Lighting Funding

If you’re keen to make the switch to energy efficient lighting, it’s a good idea to discover all the LED lighting grants and funding options which may be available.

Because of rising electricity prices and increased maintenance costs, many businesses and organisations are keen to make the switch to help them save money. Not to mention the fact that it helps them to reduce their carbon footprint.

Here at Martin Dixon Ltd, we are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to act as a credit broker and not a lender. Basically, this means we offer credit facilities from a panel of lenders - but you are obviously free to use the services of any funding provider that you may want to.

With more than 30 years of experience to our name, we realise that financing major projects can sometimes prove difficult.
Many of the businesses and organisations we speak to are being forced to make changes because of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.

To make the drastic energy savings which are required, installing LED lighting is the most obvious and quickest way to reduce their Carbon emissions.

Fortunately, there are lots of incentives to help you make the switch to LED lights, with funding available through the Carbon Trust and Salix Finance. Businesses can also take advantage of major tax allowances through the ECA Scheme.

To find out more about the loans and grants for LED lighting that may be available to you, take a look at the options below.

The different funding schemes available for LED lighting projects

Martin Dixon Ltd Leasing Scheme

Whilst there are Carbon Trust grants for LED lighting available on new projects – along with some other schemes that are listed below, we appreciate there are not as many funding streams or grants for lighting upgrades on retrofit projects.

That’s why we have partnered with a leading leasing company to help businesses and organisations finance these sustainable and energy-efficient projects.

By quoting a monthly ‘rental’ charge, which on average is not usually more than 50% of your energy cost savings, it can help to get the ball rolling by overcoming capital expenditure or budget restrictions.

And because leasing is a revenue expenditure, it is 100% tax deductible and will not therefore affect capital budgets.

Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme (ECA)

The ECA scheme enables businesses to write off the full cost of any investment against taxable profits in the year of purchase. Basically, this will allow them to boost their cash flow and improve their energy efficiency by using low carbon technology, such as LED lighting.

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is more regularly referred to as ‘the CRC’ within the energy sector. A mandatory scheme which aims to cut emissions and improve energy efficiency, it deals mainly with large public and private sector organisations because they are responsible for around 10% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK.

Designed to target energy supplies which are not already covered by Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) and the EU Emissions Trading System, the scheme was established to develop energy management strategies and promote a better understanding about energy usage and its impact.

Because the CRC is aimed at large public and private sector organisations across the UK, this type of funding and the grants for energy efficient lighting that they offer are usually utilised by large commercial businesses like supermarkets, the local authority and central Government departments.

Client Testimonials

Allan Whitehead, site manager, South Cave CE Primary School

Martin Dixon Ltd were brilliant. They stood out ahead of all other firms we looked at across the country as they could offer us the complete package. It was great to use an established local company with the expertise to deliver this for us, and throughout their time on site they were superb. Financially, the savings and extra income will allow us to run the school for a year at no cost to us.

Janet Huscroft, Headteacher, Hook CE Primary School

I was introduced to the work of Martin Dixon at an awareness raising meeting organised by the local NAHT Association. They installed solar panels and LED lighting throughout the school. The work was promptly carried out during the summer break of 2015, we are delighted with the results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin Dixon as a company to fulfil what they promise.

Alison Risebury, School Business Manager, Swinefleet Primary School

After just having had our LED lights fitted in school this week, I just wanted to get in touch to say thankyou to Martin Dixon for the work you did. All lights are now changed making a massive difference to the lighting within our school and hopefully to our electrical costs! Many thanks for the level of service that you have given us.
