We are committed to providing a voluntary community benefits package which will provide grants to the local community in the vicinity of the proposed Isles Wind Farm. This is dependent on the wind farm being built and will be available upon operation.This money will be available throughout the lifetime of the wind farm and local people will decide how it is spent.
Community Benefits Fund
Based on an installed capacity of 63.5MW, the annual amount of a community benefits fund from The Isles Wind Farm would be £190,500, which is index-linked. This is calculated by multiplying 63.5MW by £3,000 (the fixed sum per installed MW).
Services and jobs in the area
In addition, the Isles Wind Farm has the potential to bring increased demand for local goods and services during the development and construction phases of the project.
If planning permission is granted and the project is given the green light to be built we always look to use local expertise and resources to carry out work associated with constructing the wind farm.
