Wind turbine to generate power - and cash - for parish of St Enoder
THE community of St Enoder will share in the profits from a wind turbine to be built in the parish using a share of a £500,000 loan.
The money will be borrowed from the Low Carbon Society, a body set up and backed by Cornwall Council's Green Cornwall programme, and the total pot will be shared with renewable energy schemes in Gorran, Halvasso and Helford.
All four have been developed by Community Power Cornwall (CPC), an industrial and provident society which funds community-owned renewable energy generation, mainly turbines, by selling shares to members.
The council says the four schemes will provide enough energy to power 145 homes and generate more than £3.75 million from the Government's feed-in tariff over the next 20 years.

A proportion of the revenue derived from selling the St Enoder turbine's electricity to the National Grid will be given to mental health rehabilitation charity Pentreath.
Council Cabinet member Julian German said: "The money that comes from these schemes remains local so this represents a very different model from other renewable energy developments."
