We're keen to play a positive role in your community. That's why we'll be working with residents and community groups in your area to:
- offer a Community Benefit payment when the wind farm starts operating, payable annually throughout the operational life of the wind farm;
- set up a Community Liaison Group so that we can keep you informed and listen to what the community has to say; and
- use local labour to build and operate the wind farm, wherever we can.
If the Dalchork Wind Farm is built, the Community Benefit payment will be £5,000 per annum, index linked*, for each MW installed and available during the operation of the wind farm. The community may also have the opportunity to invest in the wind farm if we receive planning permission to build it.
Please note that offering a Community Benefit payment does not affect your right to give us your comments and opinions on our planning application.
