SSE Airtricity Community Fund 2017

What is THE Community Fund?

The Community Fund aims to support energy efficiency and sustainability projects in the locality of our wind farms. The fund is paid out annually, starting one year after the wind farm starts producing electricity and operates for the lifetime of each site. The SSE Airtricity Community Fund is only paid out in respect of wholly-owned SSE Airtricity Wind Farms*.

*SSE Airtricity is also proud to operate the Community Fund for the Bin Mountain and Tappaghan Wind Farms in Co. Fermanagh on behalf of the owners, Greencoat UK Wind PLC.

Who can apply?

All communities within a 12 mile/20km radius of any of our wind farms across the island may apply. However, we place a particular emphasis on prioritising those community groups located within a 3 mile/5km vicinity of each wind farm. This application process is open to not-for-profit organisations only. It is not open to applications that support individuals. Individuals may apply for funding to support a community initiative.
