Energys urges schools & colleges to use its £multi-million fund to invest in energy efficiency

The rising cost of energy and inflation means that now is the time to invest in energy efficiency – and specifically, upgrades to LED Lighting. This is the message from specialists in energy efficiency retrofit projects, Energys Group. 

The company is urging Business Managers in maintained schools and colleges to reap the cost efficiencies that upgrades to LED lighting can offer. “This is often the easiest way to save money and cut carbon,” says Energys Group Account Director Raj Gunasekaran. “Doing nothing is likely to impact on operational costs and may well affect your front line / staffing budgets.”

To support schools at a time when a combination of energy price rises, inflation and rising operational costs are increasing rapidly, Energys Group has announced a multi-million pound Energy Efficiency Fund for Maintained Schools. Energys Group is a leading specialist in low carbon energy efficient technologies, LED manufacturer with proven, tested certified lighting solutions suitable for education sector. The company provides cash positive funding programs as well as full turnkey solutions – and has implemented successful energy retrofit projects at over 1000 schools

“Our Energy Efficiency Fund for Maintained Schools is specifically aimed at educational establishments that want to energy efficiency / LED lighting upgrade projects – but can’t afford them using CapEx Budgets,” adds Raj Gunasekaran.  Energys has designed its fund in a way that no upfront payment is needed. And funding is available to all types of maintained schools.”
