E.ON opens its Energising Communities Fund

CHARITIES and community groups in Merseyside are invited to apply for up to ₤2,000 of funding through the E.ON Energising Communities Fund, available for the 2nd time this year. To be eligible for funding organisations must submit a request which supports activities that help bring about a reduction in their own energy use, help generate energy from a renewable source, or provide energy efficiency advice for local people. Applicants are encouraged to get their funding requests in now, ahead of the application deadline of Monday, 29 January 2018. Groups can apply for funding of up to ₤2,000 which may cover the full or partial cost of energy related improvements and activities.

Suzanne Doxey, Community Relations Manager at E.ON, said:- "We're really excited to be offering our E.ON Energising Communities Fund for the second time this year to give more local community groups and charities the opportunity to apply for funding.  At E.ON we understand that heating bills can account for a large part of the running costs for a community group or charity and so their need to become energy efficient and save on costs is really important. With our Energising Community Fund we're able to support community groups and charities who would like to become more sustainable but don't necessarily have the available funds to be able to progress with their plans. Since launching our fund in 2013, we've distributed over ₤140,000 to almost 85 community groups nationwide to fund energy-related projects and it's been great to hear the benefits that the funding has had, not only on the groups and charities themselves, but the wider community who use the facilities. We look forward to receiving the applications and supporting more successful community groups with the fund."

One recent beneficiary of the fund was a group of school children in Southport who attended one of 11 energy efficiency workshops at the Southport Eco Centre which was funded by a ₤1,925 grant. The pupils have since shared the energy saving advice and money saving tips they learnt with their families and the wider community, as well as presenting a special assembly at which the rest of the school heard about simple steps to reduce energy use in the home.

The E.ON Energising Communities Fund is one of the ways E.ON is supporting homeowners and the wider community to become more energy efficient and to save money on their heating bills. To find out more about how E.ON could support, visit:- EOnEnergy.Com.
