Carraig Gheal Wind Farm

Application Forms and Guidance

The Carraig Gheal Wind Farm Community Benefit fund is divided between two funding schemes; a micro grant scheme with awards of grants up to £500* available to individuals, constituted and non-constituted groups and the main grant scheme with awards of up to £7,000 available to constituted groups only.

* Please note that the £500 limit for micro-grants is a temporary increase from £250 for the 2019/20 year and it should not be assumed this limit of £500 will be available in the future.

The two grant schemes are administered and managed by GreenPower. All enquiries about the schemes should be made to Jennie Cowley at

Funding criteria and the application forms for both funds can be obtained by emailing Jennie issues all application forms and receives all completed applications. Should you have any queries or require any guidance on the application process please contact Jennie who will be happy to help you.

The current round of funding for main grants is now open from 1st November 2020 with the closing date being 31st January 2021. The Steering Group will meet at the end of March 2021 to decide which grants to approve and by how much.

More information on the management and decision making process for both funds can be found here.
