The project will contribute to the Scottish Government’s target for renewable energy, provide opportunity for community investment, and create further employment opportunities in the local area.
With established operational sites nearby, ScottishPower Renewables has a history of working positively with communities within the region. We are keen to ensure the employment and business skills required to maximise economic benefits can be delivered locally to ensure those who live near our sites benefit.
Through ScottishPower Renewables’s established presence in South Ayrshire the company has to-date contributed over £5.7m of community benefits, contributing to a variety of groups and organisations. Including the nearby Dumfries & Galloway area the total community benefit figure exceeds £11m.
