£10,000 for community renewables and energy efficiency measures  

Crowdfund and you could win one of two £5,000 prizes to make your energy project happen

Crowdfunder and M&S Energy have £10,000 to give away to two community projects that are crowdfunding to bring the benefit of renewables and energy efficiency to their community.

On the 16th May, we begin our search for community groups that are committed to being environmentally conscious and that are installing some renewable technology or energy efficiency measures in their endeavour to do so.

We’d like to help such community groups to crowdfund and make those energy ideas happen and, as a sweetener, we have 2 x £5,000 to give away to two different crowdfunding projects on the way through.

Any not for profit organisation that wants to use renewable energy to provide community benefits can apply, whether a community energy group, sports club, library, amateur dramatic society, village hall or school.
