First community fund payment made

We were delighted to make our first community fund payment to Alyth school last week. We’ve committed to pay £2,500 per year to the school for 20 years, and it was great to be able to make the first payment after only a few months of operation. The turbine has been generating strongly – May was windy for the time of year and is the record month to date. The co-operative will also be paying a community fund to the nearby Glen Isla school, to start next year.

We’re pleased to see we have started a precedent – Heartland Community Wind in Aberfeldy will also have a community fund aimed at young people – in their case to help students from the Loch Tay area access Perth College UHI. We wish them the best in their share offer which has a month to go.
