Government funding of €6.4 million has been allocated this year for energy upgrades at community and commercial projects throughout Co Mayo.
The funding for community and home energy projects is administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland - the SEAI - to help achieve energy savgins.
Grants for energy upgrades have been allocated across Co Mayo - the projects include Ballyhaunis Parochial Hall, Western Care Association in Ballina and Newport, Tourmakeady Tourist Office, Clare Island Creche, Mayo County Council's Civic Amenity Centre at Rathroeen, Ballina; St Attracta's Nursing Home in Charlestown, Shaws in Ballina, Supervalu and Mace in Castlebar, a retreat centre in Westport, Churchfield Home Services, Tim Kelly Group's Head Office in Ballinrobe and the waste water treatment plants in Ballinrobe and Westport.
Mayo FG Deputy Alan Dillon says this investment of €6.4 million will deliver energy upgrades to at least 15 community and commercial projects across the county.
He says the recipients will benefit from warmer buildings that are better for their health, and will lead to more efficient buildings, ensuring lower energy bills.
