Renewable energy (Environment)
Tegni, near Corwen, Wales, is a four-turbine wind farm which has been developed in three stages. The original turbine was erected in 1998, with two more added in 2002 and the last at the end of 2005. It produces green energy for 2,200 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.
