Win additional funding for your community group.
Join the ACE project and sign up to TheGenGame online energy game
Northern Powergrid is running the innovative ACE project in partnership with TheGenGame and Newcastle University.
If you are based in County Durham, this project offers you the opportunity to win funding for your community group, simply by you recruiting your supporters to sign up and play TheGenGame.
All your recruited supporters will receive a free “smart plug” (a plug that can be turned on and off remotely) and their engagement with TheGenGame via these plugs will earn cash funding for your group:
- Your group will earn £5 for each plug set up and plugged in (takes about 5 mins)
- Your group will then earn cash every time your supporters use their smart plug to connect appliances in their homes and extra cash on top if they allow it to be turned off once or twice a week.
- There will be final bonus cash awards to the top three performing community groups at the end of the competition (£500 for 1st position, £300 for 2nd position and £150 for 3rd position).
The earlier you start the more you can earn for your community group.
The T&Cs for your community group participation can be found here.
So, if you want to play TheGenGame and think you can recruit at least five team members to support your community group, you can register your group to take part by completing your details below:
