Community benefit fund

We want local people to see and feel the benefit of renewable energy through our wind farm benefit funds, which support community groups, voluntary organisations and environmental projects situated near our wind farms.

The Crossmore annual community benefit fund will be designed to meet the needs of the local area and will be administered by an independent charitable foundation on behalf of Energia.   

Local community groups will be invited to apply for the first round of project grants after one year of wind farm operation. 

Working with schools

The Energia Renewables Operations team are happy to facilitate school visits or classroom talks on renewable energy:

  • Discover… how wind turbines generate electricity
  • Look… inside a turbine tower
  • Learn… how drones play a key role in turbine maintenance
  • Explore... the need for climate action and energy transition
  • Think... about a career in renewable energy
