The community fund for Hill of Towie Wind Farm has been available since the commissioning of the wind farm in spring 2012. More than £80,000 per annum is now available to the local community in and around Drummuir, Keith & Mulben. RES (Renewable Energy Systems) the developer, provides the community benefit fund, REAP administers the fund, and a decision-making panel of local community representatives assesses grant applications and allocates the funds.
To be eligible for the Hill of Towie Wind Farm Community Grant Scheme groups or organisations must:
- be properly constituted and have a bank account in the organisation’s name
- operate mainly in the area of benefit – please see the map
The next closing date for applications is to be confirmed after the next panel meeting on 24th May 2017. The panel meet twice yearly, and applications can be accepted at any time of year at the REAP office.
