People in Lincolnshire living close to the proposed onshore infrastructure of the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm have just a few days left to take part in a consultation on a major new community investment fund for their area.
The consultation, to understand local priorities for the funding, the sorts of initiatives which could be supported and who might be involved in making decisions about applications, closes at 5pm on Thursday 26th February.
The Triton Knoll community investment fund comprises up to £500,000 available during the onshore construction of the wind farm and up to a further £40,000 for communities living close to the above ground electrical infrastructure. Both amounts are subject to the final installed capacity of the wind farm.
Earlier this month, RWE Innogy and Statkraft signed an agreement to jointly develop Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm, off the east coast of England. The deal sees Statkraft take a 50% stake in the wind farm, which has an expected capacity of up to 900MW.
RWE Innogy UK’s Project Manager for Triton Knoll, Jacob Hain, said: “We’d like to hear from as many people as possible during this consultation, so please take a moment to complete the questionnaire and return it to us.”
