News! Western Power Distribution Community Chest

£1000 Grants Now Available For Improvements to Community Buildings.

The Western Power Distribution Community Chest has just reopened offering community groups a share of £50,000 to install energy saving improvements in their village halls and community facilities.
 
Community buildings in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire can apply for up to £1000 to install simple improvements which reduce energy use and improve the efficiency of the space. There are no deadlines - but when the funding has run out, it's run out, so you're encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
 
The grant is administered by Centre for Sustainable Energy and funded by WPD. Eligible measures include insulating roof spaces, installing energy saving appliances, draught proofing windows and doors, fitting effective heating controls and upgrading lighting.
 
The application process is simple. Applicants are asked to submit a short application form alongside quotes for their chosen improvements, and a simple ’walkaround’ energy audit of their building. CSE are on hand to offer expert advice and guidance on completing an application should you need it.
