Our Communities

Our projects become part of the local community for around 30 years. This brings a responsibility to the communities that host our assets that we take extremely seriously.

At every stage of a project’s life cycle we will create opportunities for local people to get in touch with us, to ask questions and give us their opinions.

This will always include a combination of face-to-face and online engagement from the development stage through to full operations.

Not only do our new renewable energy projects deliver significant quantities of much-needed safe, clean, reliable electricity, but they also bring opportunities to the local area.

For example, whenever we build a new project, we seek to make as much use as possible of local skills and expertise. This means local companies offering a wide range of services will have the chance to win business and new jobs will be created for local people.

We have established lasting relationships with schools and groups at our oldest wind farms, while the newer additions to our portfolio come complete with Community Funds to ensure the financial benefits are shared with the neighbouring area.
