Around £14m of EU funds is available for more small scale community renewable energy proposals.
A statement released by the Welsh Government said “We are encouraging more proposals to come forward to benefit from £10m available in West Wales & the Valleys and £4m in East Wales. Any organisation (public, private, third sector) can apply. Green Growth and the transition to a low carbon economy represents a key opportunity to support the development of small scale or community renewable energy schemes. The area includes Denbighshire and Conwy within its footprint.
