In September 2015, Partnerships for Renewables (PfR) completed the construction of the Reaps Moss wind farm on the moors between Bacup and Todmorden. The site has 3 wind turbines with the capacity to power 8,000 UK homes each year. The site owners, Vantage Infrastructure will donate £10,000 each year for the life of the project, 20-25 years. Donations to the Fund will be index-linked, so can be expected to grow in size in most years.
