The Green Britain Foundation

Completion of the Construction of the Alveston Wind Park

Ecotricity have now completed the construction of the Alveston Wind Park located at the South of Earthcott Green adjacent to the B4427 (Old Gloucester Road). The three turbines are now fully operational and connected to the National Grid.

To view the constructions please click here for YouTube

The Green Britain Foundation is the independent charitable arm of Ecotricity, set up in 2012, to help realise the company’s vision of a Greener Britain. This foundation supports charity-led and community projects within the areas that their windfarms are located. The vision of Green Britain is simply one where everyone can live far more sustainably. The three big issues they wish to tackle are; Energy, Transport and Food – hence these are the three main themes of the work of the Green Britain Foundation who are committed to support and undertake initiatives to promote sustainability in each of these areas.

Also The Green Britain Foundation aims to address another aspect of Greening Britain through supporting the creation of new wildlife habitats and making room for birds, bees and other creatures that are essential to Britain being truly green. Their mission is to inform, educate and empower people to take the small and the big steps towards living in a greener Britain.

Once the Alveston Wind Farm is up and running Frampton Cotterell Community Groups will be able to apply for Community Benefit funding. Ecotricity will set aside £1,000 per megawatt (MW) of capacity per year. The scheme is for three 2.3MW wind turbines (6.9MW) making the total level of funding available to be £6,900 per annum for 25 years.

If your organisation is a registered charity or an organised community group within the Parish of Frampton Cotterell and your idea is going to materially advance sustainability across one of more of these themes:- Energy (the promotion of green energy in Britain). Transport (the promotion of green transport in Britain) Food (the promotion of sustainable food in Britain) and/or Nature Conservation (the conservation of wildlife and habitats), Ecotricity is now inviting Community Benefit grant applications.

It’s easy to apply. Simply read through the details on this form to check whether your application will fit with the funding criteria and complete the details and submit direct to Ecotricity.
