Let’s invest in ourselves

In recent years, a few communities have become relatively wealthy simply because a windfarm has been developed nearby.  Income in the form of community benefit payments in the region of £5k per annum per MW can amount to a hefty sum over the life of a windfarm.  For some time now the idea has been floated that some of these communities might like to invest some of their cash by taking a stake in energy projects being developed by other communities. Sounds like a virtuous circle. Anyone care for some Apple Juice?
