New Funding Available for Energy Efficiency/Carbon Reduction Projects in Academies

Everyone wants to see action on climate change, as demonstrated through the recent students strike and extinction rebellion protests. Students, in particular, are asking schools what they are doing to reduce their carbon emissions.

At Barker Associates, we can secure you the funding that would reduce your schools carbon emissions by up to 40% within a year, a huge leap towards becoming a ‘zero carbon’ school with no capital expenditure required. This unique approach will ultimately allow you to demonstrate to students and parents alike, that you are as committed to their future as they are.

Barker Associates have partnered with Less is More Capital, an ethical funding provider approved by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to deliver energy efficiency projects that involve zero capital expenditure on behalf of the school.

With external funding becoming restricted, Barker Associates are able to deliver a viable funding route for provision of:

LED Lighting Replacement Projects – Site wide replacement of older inefficient light fittings with high quality low energy LED lighting. All installed lighting is warrantied for 13 years with no maintenance costs during this period, schools can expect to save up to 30% of their electricity bill with typical installations.

Solar PV Installations – Generate up to 20% of your schools electricity requirements at a fixed price for 25 years on site through roof mounted solar photovoltaic panels. The installed Solar PV panels are warrantied for 25 years, providing you with a level of energy security in relation to any future energy price rises.

Both technologies are currently being funded by an innovative ethical funding initiative and involves no capital outlay from the school. Any surplus financial savings are required to be used in a way that matches the strong social mission of the not-for-profit body funding the scheme and be reinvested to help disadvantaged children at your school.

This is a unique opportunity, so do get in touch with our team to discuss further.
