The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) Community Grants and Warmer Homes schemes offer grant aid for a variety of energy saving upgrades for communities, businesses, and homes.

Under the SME Energy Audit scheme, businesses and organisations which spend over €10,000 can avail of a €2,000 voucher for a consultant to conduct an audit of the SME’s energy use.

In County Longford, there are currently eight Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC’s) participating in SEAI’s SEC programme – in Abbeyshrule, Ballinamuck -Drumlish, Ballymahon, Edgeworthstown, Granard, Lanesboro, Longford town and Moyne.

The programme is open to all communities with an interest in reducing energy consumption and becoming more sustainable.
Ballinamuck-Drumlish is the first SEC in Longford to develop a community Energy Master Plan.

The plan, which is funded by SEAI and due for completion in July 2022, will establish the current baseline energy use in the Ballinamuck-Drumlish area and identify potential energy savings projects.

Sustainable Energy Communities in the Midlands and South-East are coordinated by the Mullingar-based Energy and Engineering company, ORS.

The Longford County Mentor for the SEC programme is Hugh Baxter. Contact 087 222 2543 or by email at:
