Answer for Question: Community Energy Fund

Answered By: 
The Mayor

We have received 18 applications in total, from 13 different community groups, to this first round of the London Community Energy Fund.

In assessing the fund applications, we are looking at where the projects will be delivered rather than where the groups are based. Although the two are often interlinked some groups have reach across London.

We have received a) no applications for a solar project in Merton and b) one application for a solar project in Wandsworth.
