Windfarm towns 'may receive trust fund'

Windfarm towns 'may receive trust fund'
The energy firm behind a proposed seven-turbine windfarm in south Norfolk has offered to set up a trust fund to help finance community projects in local villages.

Regional news source EDP 24 reported this week that a total of £20,000 per year could be pledged to villages near the proposed Hempnall windfarm during its expected lifespan of 25 years.

These funds would come from revenue from windfarm-generated electricity that is sold into the National Grid, green energy firm Enertrag UK has suggested.

John Ellis is among the Hempnall residents who have asserted that the trust fund may be a wise idea for the community to consider and suggested that "the majority of Hempnall residents would not see or hear the turbines from their homes".

Enertrag UK is headquartered in Diss in south Norfolk and is currently developing a range of offshore and onshore renewable energy projects in the UK.

The firm was established in 2001.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18597720-ADNFCR
