“Following our application we are delighted to be informed that we will be receiving a grant from the Powering Communities Fund from Younity. This funding will help enable both the set-up and running of an Energy Local club at Rainepower Hydro in South East Cumbria. Energy Local allows local residents to purchase locally produced renewable energy at a lower rate than the market. This project will connect local people, many of whom are vulnerable, to clean renewable energy. At the time of a cost-of-living crisis we believe that clean, local power needs to be harnessed and the funding from Younity will help enable a community owned renewable energy asset to benefit local people.” Marna McMillin, Chair, Rainepower Community Hydro.
