Key benefits
• Contribution to UK targets for the provision of renewable electricity generation
• Providing indigenous, secure and reliable energy supplies
• Establishment of a community benefit fund which will be targeted at local communities. This could be used to improve local facilities through working with existing community groups, also to improve energy efficiency and implement micro renewable generation particularly to reduce fuel poverty. ‘Projects already benefiting from funding include the Cliff Plantation and Stables Wood Clearance Project and work to replace the lead stolen from St Wilfrid’s Church in Hickleton’
