To support our environmental aspirations and journey and spread the positive energy wider, Power to the people fund aims to provide funding or support for local projects, initiatives or charities that benefit the environment and local community.
Twice a year, applications are welcomed for initiatives and projects that support our Environmental Sustainability Strategy pillars that support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. In the first round, £6,000 was awarded to 4 organisations that are contributing to environmental improvement initiatives in the island community.
We are looking to help locally based initiatives, charities or projects that will benefit the environment and wider community and whose cause resonates with the four pillars of Guernsey Electricity’s 5 year Environmental Sustainability Strategy:
Previous projects we have supported
-Supplying materials and safety training for the @RepairCafe to test repaired electrical items reducing waste and increasing lifespan of appliances
-Purchasing equipment for La Société Guernesiaise Education officers for surveying and educational practical workshops
-Installing data screens for The Lihou Charitable Trust to view and manage renewable generation and energy usage on the island.
-Providing bat boxes and bat detectors for La Societe Bat Section to conduct research and their evening bat walks
Apply for the fund
Applications for the second round first are now open until 31st July 2021.
