Forest of Dean wind farm

Two west country wind turbines owned by the local community.


Project summary

Thrive believes that bringing together investment, invention and intention has remarkable benefits. We share knowledge, insights and opportunities so that everyone involved in clean energy can grow and prosper. In 2024, we invested £1 million into two 500KW community-owned wind turbines in Gloucestershire so that the project could remain in community hands. The refinancing loan along with a loan from Energy Prospects Co-operative will enable community benefit society, Resilient Energy Forest of Dean (REFD), to retain ownership of the project.

As well as providing clean electricity to the grid, funding from revenues generated will continue to support local community projects in the Forest of Dean. So far, a wide range of local community buildings and schools have benefitted as a result.
