Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust was set up by the UK Government to accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy. Alpha Lighting is an approved supplier of the Carbon Trust, this means we can arrange 0% Government loans to help your organisation switch to energy-efficient LED lighting. For more information on how we can help your organisation cut energy costs and reduce carbon footprint, please see our LED Lighting section.

LED lights supplied by Alpha Lighting qualifies for 100% first year tax relief under the Government Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme, allowing your business to write off the whole cost of the LED lights against taxable profits in the year of purchase.

Carbon Trust Loan Benefits:ACT ON C02

  • You can borrow between £3,000 and £100,000 interest free

  • Anticipated energy savings offset the loan repayment. So new equipment should pay for itself and you should continue to make savings year on year

  • The loans are Government funded and unsecured

  • A straightforward and fast application process with no arrangement fees

  • You’ll receive a conditional offer within 24 hours of your application being processed

  • Loans can be repaid over a period of up to 4 years

  • You can track the progress of your application online

Eligible Companies:

  • Private sector

  • Trading for at least 12 months

  • For project sites based in England, Wales and Scotland:

    • All Small or Medium-sized Enterprises (SME)

    • Larger businesses can also apply if they do not qualify for participation in the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme

  • For project sites based in Northern Ireland, any sized enterprise

The EU definition of an SME is an organisation with:

  • Fewer than 250 full time or equivalent employees

  • An annual turnover not exceeding €50m (approximately £43m) and/or assets not exceeding €43m (approximately £37m)

  • No controlling interest of more than 25% by a non-SME

As a guideline, the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme typically includes businesses with an annual electricity spend greater than £500,000.

EU rules on state aid mean we are not normally able to offer business loans for the acquisition or adaptation of vehicles, or to organisations involved in agricultural or fisheries products (production, processing, or marketing prior to the first sale), or export-related activities. However farmers in England can apply for a business loan of up to £20,000.
