CARES Loan Fund

The Community And Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) will begin offering loans for the pre-planning costs of renewables projects in Scotland next financial year (2011/12), with a budget of £5.35 million for supporting community owned projects and £2.4 million for supporting projects owned by land managers, farmers and SMEs. All projects will be required to demonstrate a minimum level of community benefit to the local area. More information will be available in due course. It would be helpful if interested parties could please complete an Expression of Interest Form for the loan fund.
