Local benefits

We believe that Culachy Wind Farm can be an asset to the local area, and we would like to start a conversation with the local community and key stakeholders about how we can develop a project that will help to support the local economy as well as actively contribute towards Scotland, and the UK’s, renewable energy aspirations.

Culachy Wind Farm is expected to deliver a substantial community benefit fund throughout the lifespan of the project. This is anticipated to be over £280,000 per year – more than £9m  over the lifespan of the wind farm.

Local suppliers

We are pleased that our operational projects in Scotland have managed to employ a range of local services, helping to maximise the local economic opportunities of our wind farms.

We are committed to:

  • Ensuring that our main contractors will spend at least 30% of the contract value locally
  • Incentivising all contractors to use local content

We want to:

  • Engage the supply chain
  • Learn about the skills/services available locally
  • Ensure that businesses are best prepared to tender
