In November 2015, Partnerships for Renewables (PfR) completed the construction of the Crook Hill Wind Farm. There are eleven wind turbines and the site has the capacity to power over 26,000 UK homes. Vantage Infrastructure, the development managers, will donate £35,000 on an annual basis for the operational 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.
