Tullo and Twinshiels Windfarm
What is the Tullo and Twinshiels Wind Farms Community Fund?
Quote from Eneco, the wind farm developer
"We have set up the Tullo and Twinshiels Wind Farms Community Fund because we recognise that, in helping to satisfy society’s energy needs, our activities have the potential to affect our neighbours. We accept the responsibility to minimise those impacts and to operate within the conditions of our planning permissions. We also recognise that a good corporate neighbour is one who contributes to the wider wellbeing of the community. The fund is a practical way of providing such support. The fund is for the benefit of the community and decisions on successful applicants are made by the community."
How much money is available?
The fund available annually is £1,000 per MW of installed capacity (17MW) at Tullo Wind Farm plus £2,750 per MW of installed capacity (25MW) at Twinshiels Wind Farm.
