Funding and finances
All community renewable projects, from a heat pump for a village hall right up to a hydroelectric development, will have to address the issue of finance.
Indeed, it is securing the funding for your project that presents one of the toughest challenges, on top of having the project idea, proving its feasibility, working out the technical designs, and getting planning permission.
The PlanLoCaL community renewables pack contains lots of information about funding for renewable energy projects. Check out the downloads section and the short films to the right.
