The Mayor of London’s new Cleaner Heat Cashback scheme has been endorsed by ATAG Commercial.

The scheme will allow SMEs in Greater London to apply for a share of a £10 million pot for a 30-40% contribution towards the cost of installing a new high-efficiency boiler, to replace older, higher polluting models.

This will help to save SME owners money on their energy bills, and will also reduce carbon emission rates in London – of which commercial boilers account for 7%.

Boiler manufacturer ATAG Commercial’s National Sales Manager, Paul Martin, (pictured) called the scheme a “common sense approach”.

He said: “The announcement of the commercial boiler scrappage scheme is welcome news for the heating industry and London’s businesses alike.

“It will help reduce carbon emissions and enhance air quality by seeing old, inefficient units being removed and then replaced by higher quality, greener models.”
