    SCOTS WIND BRINGS IN MILLIONS

    Scottish wind energy industry delivers record £8.8m boost to local community projects; Community projects are benefiting more than ever from Scottish renewable energy schemes, industry claims

    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
