We have some great community energy news
energyshare are partnering with M&S Energy to run their first ever Community Energy Fund, a competition to distribute £400,000 in grants to renewable energy projects that benefit the community.
If you’re a not for profit organisation that wants to use renewable energy to provide community benefits, this is your chance to secure funding! Whether you’re a community energy group, a sports club or simply an organisation that wants to have a positive impact on the environment, we want to hear from you.
There are three types of capital funding available to apply for:
1. A national funding pot for a project that require a maximum of £40,000.
2. A national funding pot for a project that require a maximum of £20,000.
3. Regional funding pots for projects that require a maximum of £12,500.
We also have a minimum funding of £15,000 which will be split between the most inspiring and innovative projects.
Applications close on 29th July 2015 so to take part, simply complete the M&S Energy online application.
It’s easier to take part than you might think, so have a look at some projects from energyfund Cornwall, a similar project we ran last year, and see how easy it is.
We look forward to receiving your application.
