FREE support to SMEs within East Sussex

Growing the Low Carbon Economy Across the South East (LoCASE)

The LoCASE programme is a unique opportunity for small to medium size businesses in Ease Sussex to improve their energy efficiency and overall performance. With FREE energy audits and grant funding of up to £10,000, businesses can cut overheads, gain a competitive edge, and enhance the brand – improved energy efficiency means much more than just environmental benefits. Achieve all of this with support from Carbon Smart – selected by East Sussex County Council to deliver the LoCASE project.

FREE energy audits
We will help you to identify quick-wins, maximise cost-savings, understand legislation and choose the most suitable energy efficient equipment.

You will receive a detailed, professional report that would normally cost up to £1,500 for FREE.

Energy efficiency grants
Funding is available to support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in your business. You can get 40% of your project paid for by the grant, up to a maximum grant value of £10,000. Our team of experts will help you identify the most appropriate projects and complete the application process.

To be eligible, your business must be located in East Sussex and pay your business rates to Eastbourne Borough Council, Hastings Borough Council, Lewes District Council, Rother District Council or Wealden District Council.
