Please do not extend the deadlines. We are a group who were ready to apply in June as per the original timetable and we will not be the only ones. We are among those groups who have been working on our project for nearly two years and have some funding in place and have joined Energyshare for one last push. If the deadline is extended again, we may lose funding we already have because it is time limited, i.e. it has to be spent by a certian date. Energyshare has made it very clear that this is just the first of many funding rounds. If a group is not ready for the first round, then there will be other chances. There may not be for our group who are ready and able to complete applications with all information including techinical data which we have already gained at cost to our group.
