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.
Meet in Whitchurch (Saturday January 18th)
HREC will be in Whitchurch this Saturday at 2pm (weather permitting) outside the Library giving local people a chance to talk with them and show their support for the community wind farm.
