NEW Community Prize Fund Launched! Is your Community Group taking part yet?

The Activating Community Engagement (ACE) project’s second community prize fund has now launched and will run until 30th October 2016. Powered by TheGenGame, the Northern Powergrid SuperLeague is open to community groups across all of County Durham to take part and earn additional funds. There are currently 21 teams taking part and your group can still get involved.

We’re looking for motivated group leaders who are willing to recruit their group members / supporters to play The GenGame, a fun online energy game, which allows you to earn funding for your community group just for being flexible with your electricity consumption.

In return for taking part, each of your supporters will receive a free smart plug (one per household) worth around £50 and the chance to win cash prizes, high street and music vouchers, all while generating funds for your community group.

If you would like your group to take part, go to and complete the short application form.
