A renewable energy project could help your business:

To reduce your own energy bills, the right renewable project could become a source of revenue in its own right.

If you’re unsure where to start, or need help with financing, our team of over 300 independently-accredited renewable energy specialists can provide you with the knowledge, support and funding to help make your project a success.

  • reduce your energy bills (e.g. heating, lighting, machinery)
  • allow you to fix energy costs over the medium to long term
  • create a potentially significant new source of revenue
  • provide an excellent return on your investment over the long term
  • reduce your carbon footprint and promote your environmental credentials.

Tailored financial support

We offer tailored loans to help your renewable energy project get off the ground.

  • Funding can be secured against alternative assets such as land or buildings.
  • Typical repayment term: 10 years.

Note, the maximum project size is 1500kW for wind power (per turbine) and 5MW for solar PV; and 1MW for both AD and Hydro projects.

The Feed-in Tariff

If you install an electricity-generating technology from a renewable source such as solar PV or wind turbines, the government's ‘Feed-In Tariff scheme’ could mean you get money from your energy supplier.

You can be paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it yourself (Generation tariff), and for any surplus electricity you export to the grid (Export tariff). You'll also save money on your electricity bill, because you'll be using your own electricity.

Security may be required. Product fees may apply. Over 18s only.
 
Any property used as security, which may include your home, may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or other debt secured on it.
