Bicker Wind Farm Trust

The trust income derives from EDF Renewable Energy Limited, the developer of the Wind Farm site at Bicker. The Trust will run for 25 years, awarding approximately £20,000 per year to practical or educational projects that either contribute to conservation, energy efficiency or environmental improvements. Examples of fundable projects include top-up grants, educational projects (attending environmental courses or workshops), community facilities (ponds, wildlife, ecology), environmental schemes, energy efficiency for community buildings, ground source energy, solar panels, biodiversity (species support), habitat creation (hedges, woodland, ponds etc).

Not for profit groups within a ten mile radius of the wind farm can apply for up to £5,000 (priority to be given to projects within 5 miles).
