Businesses in Staffordshire can now apply for free energy assessments through the Green Solutions scheme.

The scheme aims to help businesses reduce their energy consumption and costs for a greener future and more sustainable business practices.

Businesses will get a free energy assessment plus expert advice to help improve energy efficiency and support to implement the proposed measures.  Firms signing up will also benefit from complimentary Carbon Literacy Training.

Philip White, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economy and Skills at Staffordshire County Council said: “We want to help businesses be greener and save money.

“With energy costs on the rise, it’s crucial to support businesses in making positive changes. Our goal is to make it easy for businesses to adopt eco-friendly practices and lower their expenses.  The Green Solutions project is a great opportunity for us to do this and help create a greener and more affordable future for everyone.”

The Green Solutions project, is being managed by Staffordshire County Council and run in affiliation with the Business Energy Advice Service.  It’s being funded by the Department for Energy Security and Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

By participating in the Green Solutions project, Staffordshire businesses can play a key role in reducing their carbon footprint, saving on energy costs, and contributing to a more sustainable future for the region.

Support under the Green Solutions project is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

To apply and submit an expression of interest, businesses can visit the official Green Solutions website. A dedicated member of the Green Solutions team will review the submission and reach out to discuss the next steps.
