Solar panels for schools. This is just one good way of cutting your energy costs and an even better way of demonstrating your commitment to net-zero Carbon. LED lighting is another, but there are also other technologies which IU Energy can help with, all of which bring additional benefits.
IU Energy will –
- Assess your establishment’s suitability for Solar PV and other energy saving technologies
- Accurately calculate your savings
- Accurately calculate your ROI
- Provide a fixed cost quote for installation
- Design and plan your solution(s)
- Help you with your Salix finance application
- Help you apply for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) where applicable
- Present to your students about net-zero-Carbon and sustainability; run a Q&A session
We will happily assist you with Salix funding applications. Salix supplies interest-free Government funding to the public sector. In particular, this is for projects such as solar panels for educational establishments – schools, colleges, and universities.
Specifically the funding is to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills. IU Energy will help you with your Salix submission.
Funding is expressly dependent on energy savings paying off the loan within an eight-year period. Overall, Salix funds over 100 different technologies, including –
- Biomass boilers
- Combined Heat & Power
- Gas Condensing Boilers
- Heat recovery
- LED lighting
- Solar PV and solar thermal
- Voltage management
Not only does IU Energy install the systems shown above, but we also supply energy brokerage. As an illustration, green energy is in demand as a first step towards becoming energy-efficient and ultimately achieving net zero Carbon status. Frequently, buying a green tariff precedes the fitting of any technology.
“The lighting is exactly what we had hoped for and IU Energy’s support with the Salix funding application was invaluable. We are very pleased with the savings achieved as the extra money will go towards improving the school and investing in further measures to increase sustainability.
We enjoyed working with IU Energy and found them helpful, professional, efficient and willing to go the extra mile. We would definitely recommend IU Energy to other organisations looking for guidance on finance options and how to make energy savings and reduce their carbon footprint.”
