Thank you for your interest and support in this community project and the Alvington Turbine Community Resilience Fund. The society has set up this web page to ensure that the most current information is accessible to both society members and others within the local community to ensure consistency in both the information released and the timing of updates.
The 500KW Community Wind Turbine at Alvington is owned and operated by Resilient Energy Alvington Court Renewables (REACR), a Community Benefit Society registered with the Financial Conduct Authority.
The turbine was installed on 24th November 2015 with commissioning completed in early January 2016. The turbine is generating clean, green electricity in line with expectations and is well placed to deliver against the society’s social aims over the turbine’s operational lifetime. These include the Alvington Turbine Community Resilience Fund which provides grants to help address current needs and future challenges in the host community of Alvington, Aylburton and environs. Go to the June Update for more details of the fund and a link to the Application Form. Check out the September Update for details of the latest grant recipients.
The society is committed to making a positive difference locally in addition to the environmental benefits directly associated with the generation of renewable energy.
