When fully operational later this year, the wind farm will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of around 347,000 homes, almost half of all the homes in East & West Sussex, including the city of Brighton & Hove. This will save almost 600,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
Rampion has also announced a £4million community fund, including:
• £100,000 donation to local RNLI stations who help save lives at sea
• £800,000 investment in a Rampion Visitor Centre which will open in Brighton later this year.
• £3.1million Rampion Fund for local projects to benefit the Sussex community.
Chris's presentation can be viewed here and there is more information on the Rampion website.
The presentation was organised jointly by The Henfield Hall and Henfield Hub.
