From the District Council website:


A Rochford District business is the latest lucky recipient of an EU funded grant to help them become ‘greener’ as part of the Low Carbon Business programme.
Squires coffee shop in Rayleigh is the latest District based business to benefit from a cash grant which they used towards a brand new heating and cooling system.
Squires were introduced to the Low Carbon Business Programme at a Rochford District Council business breakfast event and were able to assist them with the application for a European grant towards the new air heating system.
The coffee shop is expecting to reduce its electricity usage by 6,920kWh which will mean that they also reduce their carbon footprint by 3.63 tonnes. On top of this they are likely to reduce their overhead spend by over £700 every year….

The full article is here. There is a total of £40,000 available for businesses in the Rochford area
