Cleaner Heat Cashback has Launched!
The Mayor of London’s Cleaner Heat Cashback scheme has launched. Applications from small and medium sized business in London are now being accepted. Support through the scheme is available on a first come, first served basis whilst funds last until March 2020.
About the scheme
Cleaner Heat Cashback aims to:
- boost commercial energy efficiency across the capital
- improve air quality by reducing harmful N0x (Nitrous Oxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions
- help achieve the Mayor’s ambition to make London a zero carbon city by 2050
The Mayor recognises London’s air quality as a public health crisis. It is estimated that thousands of Londoners are dying every year from long-term exposure to pollution. In 2010, London air pollution was linked to 3,000 hospital admissions and the economic cost of these health impacts is estimated as being up to £3.7 billion per year.
Cleaner Heat Cashback is part of a comprehensive range of measures being rolled out across transport, infrastructure, business, schools and health centres, to help reduce harmful emissions in the capital and to reduce public exposure to air pollution. Cleaner Heat Cashback is part of the Mayor’s Energy for Londoners programme and follows on from the Mayor’s Warmer Homesdomestic scheme, which supports fuel-poor households to cut their energy bills.
The Cleaner Heat Cashback is the Mayor’s £10 million commercial boiler scrappage scheme. It’s the first of its kind in the UK, offering a financial incentive to small and medium sized businesses in London to replace their existing, inefficient boiler with a more efficient system helping to cut bills and reduce environmental impact. This is part of the Mayor’s Energy for Londoners programme, which aims to make London’s homes and workplaces more energy efficient.
