Local business Eltherington Group Ltd made the most of their HBEES grant by using it to replace their old lighting with an environmentally friendly system, which reduces their carbon emissions by 115 tonnes a year.
A fantastic opportunity
Eltherington Group Ltd is an architectural aluminium manufacturer with 15,000sqft facilities on Hedon Road. When they heard about the HBEES grants that help SMEs in Hull to save money through energy efficiency, they got in touch right away.
One quick form
Wasting no time, Eltherington Group Ltd filled in our short application form to see if they were eligible for the HBEES grant. Imagine their delight when they discovered that they were!
We then sent our energy partners, NPS, to assess Eltherington’s premises and determine which green energy solutions would bring the greatest impact.
Due to the sheer size of Eltherington’s offices and workshop space, we recommended that they upgrade their lighting to a much more efficient LED system throughout the premises.
A bright future
Eltherington Group Ltd agreed that this would be a very smart move, as LED lighting uses a lot less energy and can significantly reduce a company’s utility bills and carbon footprint. They then got to work making the switch, which was made possible by the grant of £15,000 supplied by HBEES.
