Carscreugh Renewable Energy Park Fund became operational in 2014, and it will pay community benefit for the 25-year lifetime of the wind farm.
Six community councils are eligible for funding through the CREPL Community Fund: Cree Valley; Kirkcowan; New Luce; Port William; Stoneykirk; Old Luce.
Payments are made directly to Community Councils, or similar organisations, to use or distribute to active groups in their communities. Old Luce funds are transferred to the Old Luce Community Fund to be distributed through the open grantmaking process.
Approximately £2,500 is paid directly to Community Council’s every year in November.
