Grant funding for heat pumps

Posted: 10th May 2021

The Scottish Government is offering 75% cashback grants along with an interest-free loan for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in Scotland that want to install heat pumps.

Organisations can access the loan and receive a cashback grant of up to £10,000 while also cutting their energy bill and carbon footprint.

The SME Loan Scheme has already provided Scottish businesses with more than £26 million in loans for more than 1,000 energy-saving projects that help with the move toward carbon neutrality.

Applications are processed on a rolling basis all year round, subject to the overall availability of loan funds.

Once the fund administrators receive your application, they will aim to make a decision within 10 working days, providing they have all the information they require and the loan is signed by an authorised signatory.

If any additional information is required, the application process may take longer than 10 working days.

Funds are limited and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Apply now while funds last.

Before submitting your application, read the full ‘Important Information’ document available on the Zero Waste Scotland website. READ MORE
