Powering up communities
The Government has launched the Urban Community Energy Fund, giving community groups, including parish and town councils, in England the opportunity to bid for grants of up to £20,000, or loans of up to £130,000 to kick-start their projects.
According to the Government, parish and town councils can reap the benefits of renewable by creating "power hubs" in their area.
Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State for the Department of Energy and Climate, claims that parish and town councils can now install solar panels on local buildings or create energy from local waste can save whole communities money.
