This funding will be spread across the lifeboat stations in Newhaven, Brighton, Shoreham Harbour and Littlehampton, which operate in the area surrounding the wind farm.

Built by E.ON, UK Green Investment Rampion Ltd and Canadian energy infrastructure company Enbridge, the project is due to be fully operational in 2018. Once complete, it will provide enough electricity to supply almost 347,000 homes a year – equivalent to around half the homes in Sussex.
