Grant and loan available in Alveley and Romsley Parish for energy-efficiency projects
Astley Solar Farm – Community Betterment Fund 2018
The Community Betterment Fund has been established to directly assist individual and community voluntary groups in Alveley and Romsley Parish Council area as a result of the development of Astley Solar Farm.
The grants are for the promotion and installation of energy efficiency measures. Projects need to demonstrate a clear link to energy efficiency and renewable technology, whilst delivering positive benefits to the local community, which could include the following:-
- Small-scale renewable energy projects
- Education projects
- Capacity building projects
- Renewables energy projects
- Climate change projects
- Nature conversation projects
- Enhancing the public realm
Priority will be given to community projects, and then residential properties nearest to Astley Solar Farm. There is a ceiling cap amount of £1,000 for private residential projects and £2,000 for community projects. Please note that this is discretionary: the awarding panel can award more or less, depending on individual projects.
Applicants are encouraged to seek match funding towards their project. It is expected that residential properties will contribute a higher level of match funding than a community project.
Please note that this is a one off grant scheme. Application forms are available now, and deadline for applications is Friday 15 June 2018. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
