Thrive Renewables (Caton Moor)
Sustainable energy (Environment)
Triodos Renewables have used a Triodos Bank loan to finance Caton Moor wind farm, one of the first projects in England of its kind. Ten original turbines have been replaced with eight larger, more efficient machines. The wind farm now produces enough energy for the equivalent of 10,000 homes.
Energy is a necessity in modern life but the current dependence on fossil fuels to provide it has a high environmental and social impact. We believe that a fundamental transition is needed away from a carbon based economy to a renewable one. By lending and investing in this sector we try to stimulate this transition, with our main focus on financing solar, wind and hydro energy.
