A new £400,000 fund to help UK communities go green has been launched.
Not for profit organisations such as gyms, a libraries or a schools can apply for a share of the ‘M&S Energy Community Energy Fund’.
The winners will be decided by public vote, allowing local communities to pick the project they believe offers the greatest benefit to them.
Energy Minister Lord Bourne said: “We’re transforming the way we power homes and businesses up and down the country – boosted by initiatives like this from Marks and Spencer. This fund will bring greener, cleaner energy supplies to local communities and supports M&S Energy’s impressive move to source 100% of the electricity it supplies from renewable sources.”
Applications will close on July 29th.
