Bullington Cross Wind Farm 2Hampshire Renewable Energy Co-op wants to see community ownership of the Bullington Cross Wind Farm (and indeed other renewable energy projects in Hampshire).

10% for local community
They are negotiating with EdF to purchase 10% of the wind farm on behalf of the local community. All surpluses made from the wind farm would be re-invested in other local community energy schemes and in fuel poverty reduction programmes.

Members of the Co-op would also receive an interest payment from the Co-op on any money they invest in the wind farm.
