Glen Lonan WIND FARM

Proposed Benefits

Windfall

The Glen Lonan Wind Farm has the potential to bring numerous benefits to the local community including:

  • increased demand for local goods and services during the feasibility and construction phases of development

  • educational benefits for local schools and interest groups

  • creation of a Community Trust Fund to support activities and developments in the local area throughout the lifetime of the development

Community Benefit Funds controlled by local people

The majority of our wind farms in the UK have a benefit or trust fund in place before the wind farm begins producing electricity.

Community Benefit Funds are created to provide an opportunity to support local projects identified by local people. Each fund receives an annual income over the lifespan of the wind farm with decisions on spending made by the local community.

Benefit funds that are established for operational wind farms are usually administered by an independent community benefit fund foundation. Decisions on individual grant applications are considered by panels incorporating members of various local organisations such as:

  • Community or Parish Council's;
  • local charities; or
  • community groups.

Please download the below brochure for examples of how Community Benefit Fund monies have been spent.
