The East Coast Community Fund is part of the community engagement programme for Ørsted’s (formerly DONG Energy) Race Bank and Hornsea Project One offshore wind farms which are located off the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Norfolk coast. When they are both operational in 2018 and 2020 respectively, these two windfarms will have a combined capacity of nearly 1.8 gigawatts, making them capable of meeting the electricity needs of 1.5 million UK homes.

Ørsted has committed to a Community Fund worth approximately £465,000 each year for the next 20 years. £75,000 of the Fund each year is ring-fenced for a ‘Skills Fund’.
