The Duchy of Cornwall is a private estate which funds the public, charitable and private activities of The Duke of Cornwall. The current Duke, HRH The Prince of Wales, is actively involved in running the Duchy. His philosophy is to improve the estate and pass it on to future Dukes in a stronger and better condition. It is proposed that the gas and electricity generated by the AD plant will be supplied to organisations and businesses locally as well as the Duchy of Cornwall’s award winning development at Poundbury.
