Low carbon project fund

If your business is struggling with electricity costs and is based in Portsmouth we can help you assess whether a solar panel system is financially or technically viable.

If you meet the criteria, you may be eligible for the low carbon project fund. This funding can be used to install solar panels on your premises.

Criteria

Whether you are eligible for the low carbon project fund depends on:

  • your annual electricity consumption, and
  • how much roof space your premises has.

What happens next

If you qualify for the fund, we can help you install solar panels on your premises to reduce your carbon emissions. The installation could be free of charge and result in lower energy bills for your business.

The council would own and operate the photo-voltaic (PV) systems via a roof lease contract and power purchase agreement.

Apply for the fund
