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 over £3 million 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.
