A grant from EDF Energy could help one charity in Leeds go green and obtain cheap energy from a renewable source.
The gas and electricity supplier has awarded £22,980 to help Hollybush Conservation Centre pay for a biomass wood pellet boiler that will provide all of its heating requirements and 50 per cent of its hot water.
It is part of the latest round of grants from the EDF Energy Green Fund, which has awarded a total of £239,868 to ten projects, including a wind turbine for a primary school in Milton Keynes and solar thermal panels at a sports college in the West Midlands.
Manger of the fund Mike Thompson said the energy provider is pleased to be supporting the "innovative and exciting" scheme at the conservation centre.
He added: "Thanks to customers on our Green Tariff, EDF Energy has been able to invest millions of pounds into small-scale renewable projects," as part of its commitment to implementing low-carbon energy developments around the UK.
Elsewhere, Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) recently announced it is supporting 12 green electricity schemes in the Bath area with a £1 million start-up loan.
