New Clean Energy Fund to support groups in rural areas

Time Published 19th June 2019

The Government has announced a £10M fund to help rural sports clubs, schools and churches in England power their buildings with clean electricity so cutting their bills and reducing emissions.

New community projects are encouraged to apply for feasibility grants of up to £40,000 for green initiatives, including solar battery storage, wind, hydro and geothermal heat projects. Viable proposals will also be considered for further grants of up to £100,000 for business development and planning applications, as the government hopes to increase energy self-sufficiency in rural communities and boost jobs in green technology.
