Scottish Government 15% cashback on business energy efficiency improvements

Posted: 30th October 2018

Back by popular demand, businesses in Scotland are offered cashback for investment in projects to help cut their energy use and cost.

For a limited time, while funds last, eligible small businesses applying for the interest-free, unsecured Scottish Government SME Loan can receive 15% cashback.

That’s up to £10,000 in cashback on completion of their energy efficiency improvements.

The SME Loan 15% Cashback incentive is open to applications from SMEs with resource efficiency projects that demonstrate cost and carbon savings. These include, but are not limited to:

  • investing in LED lighting
  • installing more efficient heating systems
  • improving the insulation of a building or investing in more energy efficient equipment, such as a state of the art oven or a more efficient refrigeration unit

Eligible applicants will receive a dedicated Resource Efficient Scotland advisor to guide them through the process at no cost, helping them identify efficiency improvements with the greatest benefit to the bottom line.
