The provision of significant local community benefits is central to WCE’s vision. Over the course of the Homestead project, surpluses generated will be paid into an independent community fund. If any project managed by WCE performs better than expected, any additional profit will go into the Community Fund.
Allocation of the yearly contribution to the Community Fund will be subject to a vote by members at the AGM.
Criteria for eligible projects supported through the community fund will include carbon reduction, energy efficiency and reducing fuel poverty.
