Cornwall Wildlife Trust has been shortlisted in the M&S Energy Fund and has the chance to win £12,000 to install solar PV at our headquarters. This will mean reduced carbon and running costs and therefore more money to spend on our conservation work! PLEASE VOTE

The Trust has been helping people to enjoy nature for over 50 years and are passionate about nature conservation. The M & S Energy Fund is available to support renewable energy projects and technologies across the UK and you can help Cornwall Wildlife Trust to receive £12,000 by simply casting a vote, and spreading the word about their project.


The Trust has identified solar PV as a major opportunity to reduce running costs at their headquarters which will enable them to be able to spend more on their conservation work. The advantages are:

1. Reduces carbon footprint – good for the planet and for the neighbourhood.
2. Reduces energy costs and provides an income stream so that funding is maximised for local conservation work.
3. Living our values – demonstrating best practice to our members, the local community, and businesses

Trevor Dee, Head of Finance at Cornwall Wildlife Trust says,

“We love Cornwall and my team supports the work of our conservation staff protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places. By delivering this project we will make a real and ongoing saving to our operating costs. The reduced carbon footprint is an environmental win – but we will double down on that and invest the savings into our vital conservation work!”
