Watch-out for sources...

Watch-out for sources...

When you visit often municipal offices of 5 villages of MAS Mezilesí (Local Action Group), involved in the project "100%-RES-communities", you can feel like at a view point! They look about so intensely... for any source.

Namely financing sources, which are necessary for fulfilment of energy arrangements planned by arising join SEAP of local municipalities.

Nano Energies company, trading with green electricity and consuming power of biogas plant with cogeneration in Kněžice, just consider, whether it helps to finance an energy assistant or an upgrade of municipal website to rouse more people to action. 

There is quite new idea of the Union of Towns and Municipalities of the Czech Republic about a support of inter-municipality cooperation in improving and effectiveness increasing of public services. This project does not offer financing of capital investments but wants to pay small teams generating strategic plans, which SEAP is definitely ranked among.

The MAS is focusing on governments tools mainly. Unfortunately the "New Green Savings" program offers much less money then the previous one and cannot be used for municipality buildings so far. Call for a request for financing support of energy efficiency arrangements in public services buildings in planned for the year 2014. So realization of investments in green energy will be on in 2015 only! Then MAS Mezilesí has looked around for any possible European source. And of course they calculate what are they able to do - maybe in periods - with their spare municipal budget...
