Yorkshire Water owns a single wind turbine to help power Old Whittington Waste Water Treatment Works, which treats and processes sewage from around 100,000 customers in Chesterfield.
From 2016, a contribution of £2,500 per annum will be made, which will continue over the twenty-year life of the wind turbine.
The Fund exists to support new and existing community activity that benefits the residents of Old Whittington, particularly groups and projects working to address environmental issues.
Consideration will be given to applications from Old Whittington and immediate surrounding areas including New Whittington, Whittington Moor, Brimington, Newbold and Dunstan.
