M & S Community Energy Fund applications now open!

Posted by Chloe Lloyd on 25 May 2017 at 10:30 am

Last year we were able to bring you the good news of the Marks and Spencer Community Energy Fund and we’re happy to announce that for the third year running, the competition is back with a share of £300,000 for local community groups. Funding is available to support renewable energy projects and technologies across the UK. Perhaps it could help your group get those solar panels you have always wanted!

In 2016, hundreds of entries were received by inspiring organisations from across the country that wanted to bring the benefits of clean energy into their local community. Almost 80,000 votes were cast and funding was shared amongst the top 25 projects. This included providing funding to help install solar panels, renewable heating systems and battery storage as well as helping community groups reduce their energy costs by making their facilities more energy efficient.

Also available again this year is the opportunity to include crowdfunding. This gives groups a chance to try and raise further funds while they gather as many votes as possible. Last year, over £28,000 was donated to community groups for their proposed renewable energy projects.

Have you always wished for some help with installing some solar panels on your community centre roof? Perhaps you would like your local facilities to be more energy efficient? You can apply for funding on the M&S Energy website. Applications for funding opened on the 22nd May and the deadline is Friday 23rd June.
