Find out more about the support available and get in touch with the team by visiting the Low Carbon Dorset website.

Below is a selection of national grant schemes currently available in the UK that you may also be able to benefit from:

Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) Scheme

If you’ve installed solar panels or other renewable electricity generation in your business, you may be able to get paid for any surplus energy you generate through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme.   

Boiler Upgrade Scheme

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is a government scheme to support low carbon technologies in homes and small non-domestic properties. Check to see if you could be eligible for a grant to help you replace existing fossil fuel heating with more efficient, low carbon heating systems.
