Windy Standard Wind Farm

Circular Economy

In addition to providing a community benefit fund of over £7m to the local area, we have established a number of innovative partnerships to maximise the benefits that the project can deliver locally.

This includes a partnership with ReBlade to explore opportunities to create items for use in the local area from the blades, such as playparks, bus shelters and bike racks. The initiative embraces the circular economy, ensuring that the renewables sector is as green as it can be, whilst supporting jobs in the region and Scotland-wide.

The project has also committed to providing decommissioned components to Dumfries and Galloway College – helping students to get ‘hands on’ with turbine parts prior to entering the workplace. This commitment builds upon the existing funding that it provides to Dumfries and Galloway College to support the training of wind turbine technicians.
