Rookery South Community Energy Initiative

Rookery South Limited is unable to directly supply low cost electricity to their neighbours, so they have committed to contribute c.£60 (in the first year and index-linked in the following years) towards electricity costs of designated domestic households in the Rookery Pit area via the Rookery South Community Energy Initiative (CEI).

Schools, not-for-profit organisations and residents of households (as at 31 December 2018) in the parishes of Brogborough, Cranfield, Houghton Conquest, Lidlington, Marston Moreteine, Millbrook, Stewartby and Wootton were invited to register for the CEI. Registration closed on 28 June 2019.

Rookery South Limited has appointed GrantScape Services Ltd to manage the CEI on its behalf.

If you registered successfully for the CEI (we would have contacted you by email or post to confirm your registration). You will be contacted again before the end of 2021 with details of how to claim your subsidy. Invitations will be sent directly to your registered email or home address.

The first payment under this scheme is expected to be made next Spring (2022) once the ERF is fully operational. The payment will be adjusted (upwards) to cover the additional period in 2021, when the ERF is accepting waste as part of the testing phase.

The CEI is a 35 year financial commitment (or until the facility closes, whichever is the sooner) by Rookery South Limited, subject to householders current and future eligibility, starting from commercial operation of the ERF (early 2022).
