Recent research suggests the top reason for not proceeding with renewable energy is the perceived upfront cost

As an established and trusted supplier, a number of reputable financial institutions have worked with us to help fund renewable energy installations.

Caplor Energy can now offer a great range of payment options suitable for businesses, homeowners and communities. Some mortgage providers may also offer mortgage extensions on renewable energy products; we would recommend talking to them about this possibility.

The financial benefits of your reduced energy bill plus the income received through the guaranteed Feed-in Tariff/Renewable Heat Incentive will reduce the repayments significantly, resulting in systems being affordable in most circumstances.

Renewable Energy Grants Available

There are a number of renewable energy grants available to help fund your installation, from the well-known Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to other regional incentive schemes that are open to consumers and businesses at different times. Currently, we are aware of the following grant schemes available:

  • Target 2030 SME Grant Scheme

    Target 2030 is a business energy efficiency programme designed to help small and medium sized businesses identify and reduce their energy costs and impact on the environment through the installation of energy efficiency measures.

    More information can be found here.

    The service is funded through the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by Severn Wye Energy Agency, a sustainability charity with 20 years’ experience of supporting local businesses.

    This grant scheme is available to eligible SME businesses in Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire.Eligible applicants can apply for a 30% grant towards the installation of eligible renewable technologies on their premises, ranging from £500 to £60,000.


  • Marches Renewable Energy Project

    The Marches Renewable Energy (MarRE)  is a grant scheme part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, running for two and half years from 1 July 2019 to 31 December 2021.

Community Initiative

Our Community Solar Initiative was launched in 2012 and since then has received positive responses from many community groups

We have already allocated over £150,000 to community projects from village halls to schools buildings and visitor centres, in order for them to install renewable energy systems with no upfront cost. Under this Initiative, the costs of an installation would be paid over a 10 year period in part using the payments received from the Feed-in Tariff scheme.

Once the system costs are paid in full, the community group will then benefit from the reduced energy rates as well as the energy savings on their bill which they receive from day one. Over the lifetime of the project it is expected that a typical 4kW system under the Community Initiative will deliver savings and an income totalling £20,000 for each community group.
