Submitted by Salix on Wed, 16/10/2019 - 13:23

In 2018, Salix and the Department for Education launched a new £25m fund for maintained schools looking to install energy efficiency measures.

The aim of the fund is to support schools who are looking to lower their energy bills, reduce emissions and create a more comfortable learning and working environment for both pupils and staff.

Since the launch of the fund, £10m has been allocated to over 200* maintained schools across England.

Salix is expecting to work with hundreds more schools and with £15m available to allocate this financial year, applications are encouraged to be submitted by the 2nd March 2019.

Funding is available for the following types of maintained school: community, voluntary aided, voluntary controlled, foundation, local authority owned nurseries, PRU and special schools.

If you are thinking of undertaking any energy efficiency projects for implementation over the Christmas period, applications will need to be submitted by Friday 8th December 2019.
