Solar PV Grants

Your organisation may qualify for Government or Local Authority funding to contribute towards the cost of installing a Solar PV system.

Government Grants

The Government has previously funded solar projects through the Low Carbon Building Programme. This programme has now finished but new feed-in tariffs may subsidise the loss of these grants. New grants may be announced in the medium term.

Energy Companies

The major utility ocmpanies provide grants towards renewable energy production. They differ between companies and you should contact your own energy company to find out more.


Grants are available for public sector and non-profit organisations through the Community and Sustainable Energy Partnership (CSEP) which may cover 50% of the cost of installation of Solar PV. These are competitive and care must be taken when applying for these grants.
