HELP IS at hand for Solihull businesses wanting to lower their energy costs.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the borough can apply up to £4,000 from the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership’s (GBSLEP) Energy Saving and Business Efficiency Grant.
The scheme is designed for business owners to understand how they can run their business more efficiently and save energy.
As well as the grants, GBSLEPs Sustainability Hub is offering free guidance and advice to SMEs.
The Hub’s team is working on a range of measures from energy efficiency initiatives to unlocking ways to go greener.
Anita Bhalla, interim GBSLEP chair (pictured) said: “With soaring energy costs, the Russia/ Ukraine crisis and Covid’s ongoing impact on our workforce, 2022 is yet another challenging year for our businesses.
“Like we did in 2020 at the start of the pandemic, GBSLEP is bolstering its business support and reaching out to help our local businesses.
“Schemes like the Energy Saving and Business Efficiency Grant have been developed with our partners, utilising local insight and need. GBSLEP’s partnership of businesses, education institutions and local government is committed to driving inclusive economic growth.”
