The Mynydd Y Gwair Wind Farm Community Fund is made available by RWE’s Mynydd y Gwair Wind Farm. Now it is operational, the 16 turbine project can generate enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent needs of approximately 22,600 average Welsh homes.

The community funding from Mynydd y Gwair Wind Farm is long term, sustainable funding, and is expected to distribute approximately £6million over the 25-year operational lifetime of the project.

There will be further rounds of the Mynydd Y Gwair Windfarm Local Community Fund during 2021 – details will be made available through SCVS via the website, social channels and our monthly ebulletin (Not an ebulletin subscriber? Contact Gail –[email protected] to be added to the distribution list.)
