Community Energy Fund
The Community Energy Fund uses surpluses from the business activity of Power Up North London (PUNL) to encourage and support community action in reducing carbon in our atmosphere. The fund is administered by a committee formed of PUNL members, some of whom are directors of the Society. We want to tackle climate change, and are excited about this opportunity to take that journey with other organisations based in North London.
Join the community energy revolution by helping us save 100 tonnes of carbon
PUNL’s aim is to deliver larger-scale solar PV and renewable heat projects to save 100 tonnes of carbon by 2022. This is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 40 acres of new forest. We require your financial support to do so. Any funds provided will allow us to pay for feasibility studies and also to invest in local employment opportunities for young people to deliver projects.
