E.ON is encouraging charities and community groups on the Isle of Wight to apply for up to £2,000 of funding through its Energising Communities Fund before the application deadline of Monday 29th January 2018.

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. Groups can apply for funding of up to £2,000 which may cover the full or partial cost of energy-related improvements and activities.

“Since launching our fund in 2013, we’ve distributed over £140,000 to fund energy-related projects at almost 85 community groups nationwide. We’ve loved hearing about the benefits the groups and their wider communities have experienced as a result of the funding, from lower energy bills and increased efficiency to educating the local community and providing them with energy-saving resources.

“We’re hoping that more Isle of Wight community groups and charities will take up this opportunity to apply for funding as we look forward to reviewing all the applications received and supporting more local initiatives with the fund.”
