    James Phillips, 16 June 2015 (BusinessGreen)

    “…The wind energy industry, which dominates the list of 134 community funding providers on [the Local Energy Scotland Community Renewables Register], now invests nearly £9m a year in supporting a range of local community projects…[Developers] pay into local 'community benefit' schemes in a bid to ensure the financial benefits of new projects are shared and help secure local support for projects…Renewable energy community funding programmes have supported a wide range of projects, such as local energy efficiency upgrades, community hall developments, and new childrens' playgrounds…The UK's largest wind farm Whitelee, run by ScottishPower Renewables, contributed £1,065 per megawatt per year to nearby communities through its community funding programme…Onshore wind [also] employs almost 3,400 people in Scotland…[and] invested more than £700m in the country in the year to September 2014…Community Benefit payments, which can last for up to 20 years, are just part of that picture…” click here for more
