Renewable Communities Program grants deadline 1st October

13 Sep

The Renewable Communities Program (RCP) is offering a grant round of $1M, application deadline 1st October 2018.

Enhar is available to assist our clients in the not-for-profit and co-operative sectors to apply.

The scope of the fund is very broad, and individual projects can apply for the full $1M.

“Funding will be provided to not-for-profit organisations or established community energy co-operatives, for project(s) that:

  • will increase the uptake of renewable energy generation;
  • consider energy justice and social benefit;
  • promote community participation; and
  • reduce greenhouse emissions.”

Matched funding is not required; but applicants must have secured or have a plan to secure a cash contribution towards the project of at least 10%.

“The RCP will fund the implementation of new community renewable energy projects that:
• delivers the majority of benefits to the participating community;
• utilises technology that is commercially-ready renewable energy or new energy generation technology;
• is located in Victoria; and
• will be completed by December 2020.”
