Help to slash groups’ energy bills

A scheme offering community groups in Eastwood and Kimberley the chance to save on their energy bills has extended its deadline for applications.

Last month, E.ON launched its Energy Action Fund to help support worthwhile causes across the county. It has now extended the deadline for applications by one week so people have until July 17.

Local community centres which need to improve their energy efficiency and schools or charities looking to add a spark to the area through energy education, can all apply for funding.

Applications for the fund can be submitted for a range of energy related improvements and activities, from appliances and insulation to educational events.

Successful projects will receive anything from £50 up to £2,000, from E.ON to power their plans for a more efficient future.
