Following the success from previous rounds of funding throughout 2016/17, Salix announced further rounds for 2017/18 for the Wales Funding Programme earlier this year. The funding programme combines both the Salix Energy Efficiency Loans Scheme (SEELS) and the Invest to Save - Green Growth Finance Schemes into one application process.
The closing date for applications is 31st December 2017 with further rounds to follow in 2018 as detailed below.
- 26th March 2018
Public sector organisations are invited to apply for Green Growth Wales repayable funding for projects delivering energy efficiency, renewable energy and resource efficiency in the 2017/18 financial year.
Finance is now available for projects with a sufficiently prepared business case. If your project is not yet at submission stage, but expect to reach that point by the end of the current financial year we would still like to hear from you.
