After funding was finally secured for the wind turbines towards the end of 2016, the Dundonald wind turbine is now complete, and ready to provide green energy to the local community.
The turbine arrived on site in December 2016 and the team at Enercon had completed the building phase within a few weeks.
The wind turbine will have guaranteed funding for 20 years by Ofgem who will be providing a “Feed In Tariff” which is sometimes known as “Clean Energy Cashback”.
How will this benefit the local community?
OVHA intends to split profits 50/50 between itself and the local community, with the community share distributed through grants for local ventures and projects.
Secondly, the green electricity the wind turbine will generate contributes to Carbon savings, which benefits everybody and the planet!
