Energy efficiency loan scheme

Interest free loan from Oxfordshire County Council

This funding is now closed. If you’d like to hear about future loan offers, please express your interest via our Help desk.

Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) has launched an interest-free Schools Energy Efficiency Loan to enable OCC maintained schools to finance the installation of energy efficiency measures that will help reduce energy use.

Maintained schools can now apply for a OCC loan of up to £70,000 to install LED lighting and/or solar PV. We understand that each school has its unique energy requirements, which is why we offer the flexibility to choose either LED lighting or solar PV, or both, based on your specific needs and priorities.

By taking advantage of this loan, your school can make significant progress towards energy efficiency while simultaneously helping to reduce operational costs.
