Salix funding

The government recently announced £1 billion of grant funding to support organisations and schools with upgrading their energy solutions, including heating and lighting systems. The Public Sector Decarbonisation Grant Scheme is being delivered by Salix, and is aimed at supporting jobs across the energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation sectors, and will help deliver significant carbon savings. 

Energy consultants can support funding efforts for schools and public sector non-domestic buildings across England by completing application documents, providing energy audits, and by facilitating implementation of the proposed decarbonisation solution.

 

Supporting you

We’re experienced with delivering Lighting as a Service (LaaS) projects, and can work seamlessly with you on the energy efficiency solution. We can provide a free lighting audit ahead of the application phase, and then work with you on the client’s proposal all the way through to implementation and on-going maintenance. 

In the event that the application isn’t successful then we can still supply an energy efficient lighting solution that will deliver guaranteed cost savings for the school or organisation. There are no upfront costs, just a simple monthly service fee which is always lower than the energy savings which we unlock – meaning you generate net savings from year one.

The deadlines for Salix applications are short, with a key submission date of the 11th of December for those that wish to have their project assessed before the end of 2020. It’s important that quick action is taken if you wish to meet these deadlines.

 

Why work with us?

With over 900 completed energy improvement projects to date, we’ve saved over £16 million for our clients. We take a data driven and digitised approach to energy projects to ensure transparency and trust for our customers. Our experience makes us the perfect partner to include in your application.

 

Get in touch today

It’s important that you act today to meet the funding deadline. We have Partnership Managers ready and waiting to speak to, and can quickly get an audit underway. Call us or fill in a form and we’ll get back to you right away.

The process

How does the lighting installation work?



1
Energy and lighting survey

We carry out a free, data-driven analysis of your lighting to assess your current energy consumption and lighting levels.

2
LED lighting solution proposal

Within 2 weeks we will present a detailed proposal outlining our proposed LED solution & your projected savings.

3
No disruption LED installation

We switch your inefficient lighting to efficient, high quality LED lighting with no disruption to your day-to-day operations.

4
ongoing maintenance

You pay a fixed monthly fee out of your savings, and your lighting is fully maintained at its optimum level for a 5-7 year term.

Testimonials

“eLight provided a turn-key solution to replace our sports hall, drama and squash court spaces, not only were they very cost competitive but the installation team worked quickly and professionally providing us with a seamless installation.”

Alastair Blackmore, Estates Manager, Abingdon school

“On its own it’s a small step, but we are teaching our students something of the value of making sound environmental choices. It is particularly helpful that in doing so we are also saving money for the school.”

Principal David Hayes, Malahide Community School

“eLight provided an excellent lighting solution for our school, replacing our old, tired and costly-to-run lights with no upfront cost. have commented that the new lighting is much better and it has really improved the classroom environment.”

Shirley Si Ahmed, School Business Manager, Purley Oaks Primary School

“The environmental agenda is being driven by children all over the world. Our students are part of the generation that are taking leadership and demanding change. We are delighted to enter this new partnership with eLight!”

Deborah O’Hare, Principal, Wallace High School

“We have noticed huge benefits since we switched to LED lighting with eLight. Not only are our lights great quality but eLight have enabled us to start meeting our climate change objectives”

Michelle Faulkner, School Business Manager, Stretford Grammar School

“All schools are under significant pressure to reduce costs. It is not often that we can do that while improving the learning environment for our students. Our partnership with eLight is now delivering real benefits for our school.”

Mark Webb, Operations Manager, Culford School

“People joke about keeping the lights on, but we were genuinely astonished at the cost involved in lighting our school.  When we met with eLight, they showed us that with LED lighting our cost would fall to under €4,500. They reduced our energy use by 70%.”

Donahies Community School Principal, Peter Keohane

“Like all schools we have to identify funding where we can.  Normally, to get these kind of improvements you have to be able to pay a big lump sum up front, that simply isn’t an option for our school, or most schools.  Every penny is carefully watched and spending is prioritised.  This was excellent, we were installing a system that would not only save us money for the next 15 years, it would actually release cash to us in year one.”

Kenmare Community School Principal, Dermot Healy

“We are trying to instil certain values in our students.  One of those is a concern for the world in which they live. There is a strong environmental consciousness among the student body and they were very much on board with the initiative. On its own it’s a small step, but we are teaching our students something of the value of making sound environmental choices.  It is particularly helpful that in doing so we are also saving money for the school.”

David Hayes, Malahide Community School
