The North-West region plays an important role in our UK offshore wind operations and our aim is to make a lasting and positive impact here. We want to ensure the local community benefits from the renewable energy revolution that’s happening along its coastline.
Our Walney Extension Community Fund has awarded £3.3million to 184 community projects in Cumbria and Lancashire since its launch in 2016. Each year, approximately £600,000 will be made available for community projects for the expected 25-year lifetime of the wind farm.
Our Funds are administered by independent grant-making charity GrantScape, with decision-making supported by local Advisory Groups made up of community specialists who benefit from a strong and deep understanding of the local community and environment.
