    I don’t think you can apply posting on here, you have to read the link in the article

  2. I am the chair of the St Mary’s Nantwich Church Eco Group. We would like to place solar PV panels on the roof of the church which faces South to reduce the amount of the electricity we import there by reducing our carbon footprint. We have already had an estimate for the costs but like most Churches, we do not have funds to do this and would be grateful for a grant to help us.
