Spirit of Lanarkshire Wind Energy Cooperative Community Fund


SOLWEC and Auchrobert Community Fund aims to support communities in the vicinity of West Browncastle, Nutberry and Auchrobert wind farms to pursue projects which reduce greenhouse gas emissions or improve the environment and benefit the people who live in the immediate vicinity of the windfarms.

A portion of the fund will be targeted at energy audits for community buildings and feasibility studies particularly for ideas which link to the aims of the fund.

In addition, they are currently operating a Warm Welcome support scheme which offers funding to assist with the cost of heating community-owned buildings which are offering a warm space to people during the cost of living crisis.
