EDF Energy's proposals for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast

Capable of generating enough electricity to supply around five million homes

The two UK EPR reactors would generate electricity for up to 60 years

At the peak of construction the project would provide around 5,600 employment opportunities

Once operational, the new power station would support around 900 permanent jobs

Contributing to the UK's future needs for low carbon, secure and affordable energy

Suffolk community projects get a cash boost thanks to EDF Energy

Dozens of Suffolk based projects are celebrating thanks to donations from Sizewell B and the Sizewell C project.

Both Sizewell B and Sizewell C offer funding for community projects within a 10mile radius of the station and development site.  Up to £20,000 is made available each year to projects that meet the criteria.

So far this year funding has been provided for projects ranging from a new boules pitch in Middleton village to a new clubhouse for the Aldeburgh & Thorpeness Rugby Club.

Over the summer, Aldeburgh Carnival will once again benefit from a donation towards their floats and also the hands-on support from the Sizewell B apprentices as carnival marshals to help with the smooth and safe running of the event.

Niki Rousseau, Sizewell B Community Relations said: “It is good to see that so many worthwhile projects get off the ground with the help of EDF Energy funding and hands on support from our employees.  We wish these projects the best of luck.”
