Cuckmere Community Solar Company
Principles for our proposed Community Benefit Fund
The Cuckmere Community Solar Farm aims to bring a range of benefits to our local area: environmental benefits of reducing carbon emissions and promoting biodiversity; economic benefits including dividends retained locally; and social benefits through the creation of a fund for local use from our Community Dividend – the surplus income we will generate. This note describes this fund.
If we are successful in making our project happen, we will have the inspiring opportunity to use a new source of community income to help people make their homes warmer, cheaper to run and more sustainable.
