£43k grant for Dundee church aiming to be greenest in Scotland

An eco-friendly Dundee church has received a £43,800 grant from a Scottish Government scheme.

The money from the Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (Cares) will enable Gate Church International on Perth Road to fund energy storage.

It is aiming to become the greenest church in the country and already has a solar and thermal system.

Chris Morris, Local Energy Scotland manager, said: “New, innovative and smart renewable project models are evolving – and the advice, support and funding from Cares continues to adapt and remain flexible to help projects achieve their ambitions.

“We look forward to supporting another diverse and exciting range of projects at the next funding panel, which will enable innovative solutions to local energy needs.”

Cares is open for applications until November 19.
