The Carbon Trust offers 100% interest free loans for qualifying businesses to install renewable energy solutions.

All businesses qualify for the Inland Revenue Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme.

100 per cent first-year Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA) allow the full cost of an investment in designated energy-saving plant and machinery to be written off against the taxable profits of the period in which the investment is made. The general rate of capital allowances for spending on plant and machinery is 25% a year on the reducing balance basis.
