Clocaenog Forest Wind Farm Fund
What is Clocaenog Forest Wind Farm Fund?
Clocaenog Forest Wind Farm is an onshore wind farm project owned by RWE. It is built on land leased from the Welsh Government that is managed by Natural Resources Wales.
The 96MW project, near Denbigh, has 27 wind turbines in the forest and has the capacity to produce electricity for approximately 63,800 UK per year1.
As part of the project, there will be an investment of £19 million over 25 years for communities within the area of benefit in Conwy and Denbighshire counties.
Launched in October 2020 the scheme is independently managed by CVSC. Applications to the fund are assessed by a local panel on a quarterly basis. The panel comprises of community representatives recruited from across the area of benefit.
1 Energy predicted to be generated by the proposal is derived using wind speeds monitored in the local area and correlating to longer-term historical weather data using meteorological models seeded with data obtained from satellite, surface-based, and airborne measurement systems. The calculations are based on an installed capacity of 96MW. Equivalent homes supplied are based on an annual electricity consumption per home of 4100 kWh. This figure is supported by recent domestic electricity consumption data available from The Digest of UK Energy Statistics and household figures from the UK National Statistics Authority.
