Community benefits

Benefiting from renewable energy projects

Looking to engage with commercial developers regarding community benefits? Or is your community already involved in a community benefit arrangement? You may be looking for advice on how to best manage an income stream from a shared ownership or wholly-owned renewable energy project.  

We can help you establish or review your arrangements. 

We support communities to make the most of local benefit from renewable energy developments; whether through the creation of a community fund or other benefits.
