On commencement of construction of the wind farm a Community Fund will be established with funding of £5,000 per Mega Watt of Installed Capacity (anticipated to be between 6 and 6.9 MW), for each operational year of the wind farm.
*Please note that this figure is based on 3 turbines with a rated capacity of 2.35MW operating at 25.5% capacity (measured wind speeds from site) and assuming 3,938 is the average UK household electricity consumption in kW hours (based on DECCs publication Energy Consumption in the UK (2016).
