New funding for community projects to produce their own energy

The DECC have today announced a funding pool of £10m will be available to communities projects who would like to produce their own energy.

The Urban Community Energy Fund will give community groups in England the opportunity to bid for grants of up to £20,000, or loans of up to £130,000 to help kick-start their projects.

Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said:

“I want to give more people the power to generate their own electricity and by supporting community energy projects we can - helping them drive down their energy bills at the same time.”
