Top tip: How to get help with funding your energy saving capital equipment
Did you know that the Carbon Trust’s Green Business Fund offers capital contributions to small and medium-sized businesses in England, Scotland and Wales for investing in energy saving capital equipment, including air compressors? The contribution can fund up to 30% of the project’s value (up to a maximum £10,000) and the minimum size of the project must be £2500. Equipment should be sourced from a Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier. Note that the capital contributions are only available whilst funds last and the Carbon Trust assesses each project for eligibility.
Step by step guide to applying for a capital contribution
Is your compressed air system sized correctly?
Specifying your compressed air system by flow and pressure - not kW power - is the most accurate way to match a compressor’s performance to the desired application. It can also allow you to specify a lower kW rated compressor, at a correspondingly lower purchase price and reduced running costs.
