26 September 2019
17:00 – 19:30
This event is open to local community groups to find out more about how we can support you.
The Electricity North West Powering Our Communities fund supports projects that put community and local energy at the heart of communities. In 2019 we have supported six projects who received a share of £71,000.
The event will celebrate the successful projects from last year’s fund and give more information on how to apply for this year’s fund.
This year Electricity North West is launching a new version of the fund called ‘Empowering our communities’ that will fund projects that will increase resilience and bring community-wide benefit. Further details on criteria and the application process will be provided on the night.
