Community fund

Our central vision is to benefit the local community, which is why we recycle 100% of our profits back into inspiring projects across the County. Our Solar Farm will generate £20,000 every year (maybe more as the years go on) that we distribute to community organisations within Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire.

Grant funding is awarded to successful applicants following a grant application from the community group themselves. Applications for this year’s funding have been suspended, however we hope that the community fund will re-open in 2021.

We will be looking to support projects that deliver:

  • renewable energy generation
  • wildlife conservation
  • climate change mitigation
  • other carbon reduction (including local food, transport, waste projects etc)
  • reduction of fuel poverty

We favour projects that make a measurable contribution to reducing carbon emissions and those that also secure their own match funding.
