BWCE Community Fund open to applications

The Bath & West Community Energy (BWCE) Community Fund is now open for applications with a deadline of 2nd November 2020. Decisions will be announced in January 2021.

The BWCE Community Fund supports local community projects that target carbon reduction and/or fuel poverty. This year, as a response to the Covid-19 crisis, fund guidelines have been amended to additionally consider applications that increase the resilience of communities in a way that also reduces carbon emissions.

The area of benefit covers Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES), parts of Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire that border B&NES (see map) plus the area of Somerset close to our Crewkerne solar array at TA18 7NX.

To read the guidelines and to make an application go to Quartet Community Foundation.

BWCE has given the BWCE Fund £195,000 to date with a further £15,000 donated to South Dartmoor Community Energy. To see the projects that received funding from 2015 to 2020 go to BWCE Community Fund.
