Business Energy Efficiency Programme (BEEP)

What is the Business Energy Efficiency Programme?

The Business Energy Efficiency Programme (BEEP) is a partnership between Worcestershire Councils, Herefordshire Council, Telford & Wrekin Council, Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce and Shropshire Council. Together they support eligible business to become more environmentally friendly and save money on energy costs.

Who is eligible for a grant?

Small and medium sized businesses with fewer than 250 employees are eligible for the grant. Company turnover must be less than €50m, or a balance sheet total of less than € 43m. Your company must operate from a business premises and pay business rates and an electricity / gas tariff, plus spend at least £2,000-£4,000 per year on energy.

A variety of projects could be eligible for a grant, including solar PV. The Combined Authorities have an allocated grant pot which will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Your company could be awarded a grant of up to £20,000 to pay for 40% of the cost of your project.

How does the grant application process work?

Mypower are award winning installers of commercial solar PV systems of 50kW and above and we help businesses reduce their impact on the environment, while also reducing their costs. 

A grant will reduce costs further and, although it is a straightforward process, we always support our customers through the application. The first stage is a free and independent carbon survey and report.
