The provision of significant local community benefits is central to WCE’s vision. It is projected that over the course of the project in this fundraise over £2.4m will be paid from surpluses generated 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.
