North East Herts MP encourages E.ON Energising Communities Fund applications

North East Herts MP Sir Oliver Heald is encouraging local groups and charities to apply for funding from the E.ON Energising Communities Fund.

The Fund awards grants of up to £2,000 which can cover the full or partial cost of energy-related improvements and activities.

Since launching the fund in 2013, E.ON have distributed over £140,000 to almost 85 community groups nationwide. E.ON appreciate that heating bills can account for a large part of the running costs for a community group or charity so their need to become energy efficient and save on costs is really important.

To be eligible for funding, organisations must submit a request by midnight on Monday 29 January 2018. Further information is available at

Commenting, Sir Oliver said “This is an excellent opportunity for local groups in our area to get funding to help reduce energy costs and I encourage groups and charities in North East Herts to apply.”
