We support a wide variety of projects each year through our wind farm Community Funds. We've funded many different types of projects, from energy efficient sports lighting to solar powered safety lighting. We've even installed Building Energy Ratings for communities around our wind farms.
If your community group is considering applying to one of our Community Funds, then why not have a look below at some of the past projects we've funded?
Ballyvourney National School
SSE Airtricity’s Community Fund awarded the school a funding package to help pay for a full heating and insulation upgrade.
Templeglantine Community Hall Retrofit
Templeglantine community hall was built by voluntary labour in 1974. By modern standards, the building was poorly insulated, had an inefi cient heating system and leaked heat through its single glazed windows. A survey revealed a Building Energy Rating of (F). The Community Fund has helped to transform this once energy-wasting community hall into a vibrant, energy efi cient local landmark.
Lack Village Solar Powered Lights
The Lack Village Safer Routes Scheme aims to encourage parents, teachers and children to use sustainable methods of transport. The provision of solar powered signage around the school through the Community Funding package will help to raise awareness of road safety in the local village.
