Wind2 would make an annual contribution £5,000 for every megawatt of installed capacity during the period of operation to a local community benefit fund. On the basis of a 70MW project, this would amount to a community benefit fund with an equivalent annual value of £350,000 or £10.5 million over the life of the project. Wind2 will look to tailor the community benefits package offered, based on feedback from the local communities, with a view to contributing tangible benefits.
Community Share Ownership
Wind2 would look to explore potential models for part community share ownership of the proposed Kirkton wind farm. This would provide an opportunity for the communities around the site to acquire a direct stake in the project.
