Despite the uncertainty around Brexit, UK Government funding is available until 31 August 2018 for UK producers looking to install or re-fit their livestock houses with LED lighting. EU funding is still available too.
Greengage can also refer you to an experienced agricultural grant expert. A grant expert is recommended since they assess your application before you commit to making an application and free you up from time-consuming applications. Contact us or use the form opposite to receive information about the grant expert.
The Department for Environment, Farming and Rural Affair’s (DEFRA) website highlight one of the key advantages of LED technology over traditional CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) lighting:
“LED lighting in livestock housing can reduce a farm’s energy consumption and improve animal health and productivity”.
DEFRA’s grants are a great opportunity to refit one or more of your livestock buildings with our Agricultural Lighting Induction System (ALIS) LED lighting system and reap its many benefits sooner rather than later. In addition to helping with the grant application, Greengage can also provide:
- an online or face-to-face presentation of our ALIS system
- overview of the production, animal welfare and operational benefits unique to ALIS
- a lighting design (for the LUX measurements)
- energy savings calculation
- return of investment calculation.
The Energy Department also provides funding to farms looking to reduce energy consumption.
