Cefn Croes Community Trust

Cefn Croes Wind Farm Community Trust Fund

What is the Cefn Croes Wind Farm Community Trust Fund?

The Cefn Croes Wind Farm Community Trust Fund is a Charitable Trust funded by Cambrian Wind Energy aimed at small community led organisations. Priority will be given to projects in the Community Council Areas of Blaenrheidol and Pontarfynach and then to the wider area of the County of Ceredigion. The fund is managed by a board of five Trustees representing Cambrian Wind Energy and the Communities of Blaenrheidol and Pontarfynach. The purpose of the Trust is to support any type of activity that involves local people, through small community organisations, that benefits their community. The activities must provide some measure of economic, environmental, educational, social or cultural benefit for people living in the area. Cambrian Wind Energy will pay £58,500 plus inflation annually into the Trust Fund while the Cefn Croes wind farm is operational.

The current Trustees are

  • Andrew Williams representing Falke Renewables Wind Ltd
  • Cllr. John Wall and Miss Elan Jones representing Blaenrheidol Community
  • Cllr. Philip Lloyd and Mrs Jane Jenkins representing Pontarfynach Community
