SMEs are invited to apply for grants towards the cost of smart lighting through a government funded grant scheme administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). SEAI is now accepting applications from businesses for €3 million in grants. The grant will cover approximately one third of the cost of energy efficient lighting upgrades, helping small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) save up to 90% on their lighting costs. These smart lighting upgrades will typically pay for themselves in two to three years. The grant is open to all SMEs sectors including retail, hospitality, tourism, private education, health facilities, and manufacturing. Applications can be submitted by individual businesses or by co-ordinators who group applications and are in a position to apply and deliver lighting upgrades for a number of businesses.
The closing date for applications is May 31st.
