The hotel was supported by the Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme to help them implement these energy saving measures, and was awarded £47,320.26 of grant funding to help them achieve this.
David Smith, owner of Bacchus Hotel said: “It’s important that businesses start to look at how they can reduce their impact on the environment and what I call ‘future proof’ their business.
“The process with Smart Energy was really simple and smooth. I highly recommend businesses to get involved while the support is still there.
“It is important for us to reduce our carbon emissions, but I have also seen by implementing these measures, it has had a positive impact on reducing our electricity bills too, so it’s a win-win situation.”
To help support them on their sustainable journey, the programme partners, IfaS, conducted an intensive audit of the site and had in-depth discussions with David.
The Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme is set to finish early next year in March 2021.
The funding can help businesses invest in a wide range of energy saving technology from LED lighting, new energy efficient boiler to solar PV. If your business is thinking of investing, the Smart Energy programme may be able to help you.
