Supporting communities through our dedicated funds

We want our wind farm investments to deliver long term social, economic and environmental benefits for everyone. Along with our joint venture partners, we have wind farm community benefit funds in place to encourage stronger interaction and engagement with communities neighbouring our wind farms as well as helping those communities to become more sustainable through the support of positive local initiatives and activities.
