Eon encourages groups to adopt energy-saving measures
Gas and electricity supplier Eon has launched a sustainable fund which aims to provide community groups across the UK with grants and advise to help with energy-saving projects.
New applications for a portion of the cash are being taken until June 12th and the company states it has already seen "huge interest" from green-thinking groups who want to make their facilities more environmentally-friendly.
Eon's community relations officer Tony Jenkin Jones said that previous projects which have benefited from the funding include a solar-panelled water heater for a café at a monkey sanctuary and a swimming pool in Scotland which uses waste heat from a local distillery to warm its water.
"If you have a sustainable improvement project in mind which is educational and beneficial to all local groups, and you can show energy efficient steps that you've already taken, then get involved now and find out how we can help your green dream come true," he added.
