The electricity network operator Southern Electric Power Distribution is offering grants of up to £20,000 for projects or equipment that would improve the welfare of towns and villages.
This round of £300,000 is available to non-profit organisations, community groups and charities working in SEPD’s distribution area of Hampshire.
The fund is designed to help people during significant power cuts or extreme weather events.
Stuart Hogarth, director of customer operations for SEPD, said: ‘In previous rounds we’ve funded hand-held radios to cold-weather kits for elderly residents to mobile generators – a few sensible preparations can make a big difference in strengthening community resilience.’
