EDF Renewables

Corriemoillie Community Fund

Background

EDF Renewables Corriemoillie Community Fund is a charitable fund to benefit people living in the community council areas of Contin; Garve and District; Lochbroom; Marybank, Scatwell and Strathconon; and Strathpeffer (the Area of Benefit).

EDF  is committed to providing a community benefit fund linked to its Corriemoillie Wind Farm, equal to £5,000 per MW of installed capacity. Based on the current wind farm export capacity of 48.45MW, the funding will comprise £242,250 in total per year, rising annually in accordance with the Consumer Price Index. The funding is expected to continue for the operating lifetime of the wind farm which is likely to be 25 years. More information about EDF can be found at: http://www.edfenergy.com/

The Community Fund will be split into six sub-funds. Each community council area will have its own local community fund, and there will be an Education and Training Fund covering all five community council areas, which will support a range of education, training or re-training opportunities. Following consultation with the local communities the Fund has been split as follows:

Education and Training Fund (20% of the total)
Contin (7% of the remainder)
Garve and District (80% of the remainder)
Lochbroom (1% of the remainder)
Marybank, Scatwell and Strathconon (5% of the remainder)
Strathpeffer (7% of the remainder)

Making A Difference

This money represents a significant amount of charitable income for the local area for the next 25 years.  Each community council area will set its own specific priorities for funding in light of the identified needs of local people. The priorities for the Education & Training Fund were developed by a Steering Group comprising representatives from the five local communities in the Area of Benefit, businesses, and education and training bodies.
