CommunitiesWorking with local people to minimise our impact and benefit the community.
We are working closely with communities along Scotland’s east coast to minimise the impact of our work during construction of the wind farm and once it is operational.
We also want to support communities, by creating new jobs, improving education and skills; boosting the local economy; developing the local infrastructure and environment; and providing community benefit opportunities.
The NnG project team regularly attends local community events giving us the opportunity to meet the local communities and provide more information about the wind farm.
We will provide dates and details of the future events we will be attending here.
Education and skills
We work with local and regional educators to support their teaching of renewable energy, keeping pupils up to date on the NnG project and sharing details of apprenticeship opportunities.
Our project team regularly take part in education and skills events, discussing careers in renewables and encouraging pupils to explore STEM subjects.
Community Benefit Fund
More details on the NnG Community Benefit Fund will be available in the coming months.
A community benefit fund is an annual payment that communities surrounding a wind farm receive to invest in initiatives, people or local improvements.
Designed and delivered in partnership with communities, the fund is a way of giving something back and providing ongoing support.
