Investment priority: Supporting Local Businesses
Shared Prosperity Funding: £273,760
Make it Net Zero Torbay is a free support programme designed to help local businesses with reducing their carbon emissions and saving money on their energy bills.
Participating businesses will benefit from a bespoke package of support to help them assess their current carbon impact, identify bespoke actions to reduce their impacts and hopefully save money. A decarbonisation plan for making it all happen will also be produced, making it as easy as possible for the business to deliver it.
Participating businesses also have the potential of being awarded grant funding to support their decarbonisation plans and introduce energy saving measures. For example, a company could receive a grant to install energy efficient lighting or part fund a new heat pump.
