Firms encouraged to apply for solar panel grants

Solar panels in Bristol

Grants for small and medium-sized firms plus charities to install money-saving, carbon-cutting solar panels on their roofs are available from the West of England Mayoral Combined Authority.

The mayoral solar scheme offers eligible firms and charities a one-off grant of up to £50,000 towards the cost of buying and then installing solar panels on their larger commercial and industrial roofs – think warehouses, factories and larger offices.

It’s all part of the drive to help the West’s firms cut their greenhouse gas emissions while easing the cost of energy bills – a win-win for companies, and the planet.

Dan Norris, West of England Mayor, said: “The West of England Mayoral Combined Authority which I lead has a relentless focus on helping local firms and charities to save carbon and cut bills.

“This is even more important as the cost-of-doing-business crisis rages on. Apply today!”
