Last year, Northern Ireland businesses saved over £2.4m on their energy bills using loans from the Carbon Trust (funded by Invest Northern Ireland) to upgrade to more energy efficient equipment.

Regency Carpets Testimonial

After taking out a 0% interest loan to help finance a lighting upgrade, Regency Carpets of Bangor has reported energy cost savings of over 67%, and it is expected that the loan will be fully repaid within 2 years.

We had a very clear business case to replace our lighting, which delivered both financial and environmental benefits, at the same time as creating a safer, more welcoming work environment.

When combined with an interest-free loan from the Carbon Trust implementing this lighting project became a simple decision.
