Benefits - Support Communities

Communities in the vicinity of a wind farm or solar farm can benefit from their existence through community benefit schemes that fund specific community projects and initiatives. Revenue from the operational wind or solar farm is donated into a trust fund which is managed by local authorities and/or community members. As this fund is managed by the local community, it is up to the local residents to decide how the money is best invested back into the neighbouring area.

To develop, build and maintain a wind or solar farm and its access route, we aim to work with local consultants, contractors and service providers for their support and expertise wherever possible. With enough renewable energy projects (a critical mass) the UK is able to develop and sustain its own renewable energy sector, creating jobs for thousands of people across the UK.
