Good Energy launches wind farm community fund
Good Energy’s four new turbines at Delabole have been up and running for almost a year; to celebrate, the 100% renewable electricity supplier is launching its community fund. The wind farm is now generating enough electricity to supply around 20% of Good Energy’s 27,000 customers with clean, green electricity, and saving around 13,000 tonnes of CO2 each year: quite an achievement.
The fund will provide around £9000 per year to be spent on projects that benefit the community of Delabole. Applications for this year’s fund will need to be in by the end of January. Details of future application deadlines will be available from the Delabole website.
Good Energy’s founder and CEO, Juliet Davenport, said: “The people of Delabole have always been very supportive of the wind farm, and we think they deserve to share the benefits of having a wind farm in their midst, so we’re really pleased to be launching this fund and giving something back to the community.”
In order to ensure the fund puts the interests of the Delabole community to the fore, Good Energy has invited local representatives to form a committee who will decide how the money is allocated. Application forms can be downloaded below or obtained from Chris Hore email@example.com.
