Eight Local Groups Benefit from Wind Farm Community Fund

Funding worth a total of £38,982.08 was awarded earlier this year to a range of local groups and projects from the St John’s Hill Wind Farm Community Fund.

Quintas Energy, a leading independent renewable energy developer, established the St John’s Hill Windfarm Community Benefit Fund to support local groups and projects. Funding is available for the benefit of not-for-profit groups and organisations in the Community Council areas of Arbuthnott and Catterline, Kinneff and Dunnottar. Administered by Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), applications to the fund are assessed by a Decision-Making Panel made up of representatives from both Community Council areas, and local representatives. The fund is available annually for the lifetime of the wind farm.
