The existing Rothes III wind farm has established a community benefit fund as part of its ongoing commitments to communities in the vicinity of the wind farm. The purpose of the fund is to enable communities to carry out improvements to their local area in ways that benefit the local environment, local amenities or tourism.
Whilst we build and operate wind farms we also focus on reducing the impact on local communities and the area’s ecology. Each year the wind farm allocates an amount of money to the community councils, which administers its disbursement to the community.
Consideration will be given to all types of project which benefit the local community and permission to proceed will be granted for ideas which successfully fulfil the aims of the scheme. Applications will be dealt with on receipt of the application form that is available from your local Community Council.
