We applaud the work done by the local council in the hon. Member’s own constituency with the Plymouth Energy Community.</p><p>Since 2013, the UK Government has committed over £16m to support community energy. This includes the Rural Community Energy Fund which continues to offer feasibility and development finance for renewable energy projects. Community renewable energy projects also remain eligible to apply for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme.</p><p>We are pleased to support events of the current Community Energy Fortnight (24<sup>th</sup> June – 7<sup>th</sup> July) and are reviewing the latest State of the Sector report by Community Energy England.</p><p>This Government sees community energy as an important part of a wider local energy ecosystem; with cities, municipalities and local partners driving this agenda. As such we have already committed funding to identify and overcome local barriers to delivery in the short term while we understand the contribution and importance of this sector to the delivery of both the Industrial Strategy and the Clean Growth Plan.</p>

Some of these pensioners are with suppliers with less than 250,000 customers but who have opted to participate in WHD voluntarily. We estimate that roughly 60,000 pension credit guarantee credit recipients who would be eligible under the scheme do not receive the rebate as a result of being with a non-participating supplier</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Community benefit societies which are not registered charities currently pay corporation tax on their profits, investment income and any capital gains. At present the government does not consider a specific exemption from corporation tax to be appropriate as there are alternative routes by which community benefit societies could access an exemption- most importantly registering as a charity if the relevant conditions are met.</p><p> </p><p>The business rates system also includes a number of reliefs and exemptions for registered charities. If a community benefit society is a registered charity then it would be potentially eligible for this support. And all community benefit societies will benefit from the reduction in business rates announced at Budget 2016, which is worth almost £9bn.</p> more like this
