The aim of the Community Fund is to financially support initiatives and projects that enrich and enhance the local community to the White Rock Wind Farm.

Representative from the White Rock Wind Farm project owner, Brian Hall – Deputy General Manager for CECEP, said that quality of applications was outstanding.

‘We were very impressed by the applications put forward from a diverse range of community groups.

We are extremely pleased to announce 24 projects will be receiving funding in this inaugural round. These projects are diverse in nature – from supporting an art competition, to replacing the windows at the Ben Lomond War Memorial Hall, to assisting the P&C at Glen Innes Public School and many, many more local initiatives.

We would like to thank all applicants for taking the time to apply. We look forward to reviewing many more applications over the life span of the Fund and continuing to contribute to the local community to the White Rock Wind Farm for many years to come.

Applicants that were unsuccessful in the inaugural round are welcome to reapply in the future. Applications for the 2019 funding round will open in March 2019.’ Said Brian.

White Rock Wind Farm has 70 Goldwind advanced turbines installed with a capacity of 175 megawatts. The wind farm powers approximately 105,000 NSW homes with renewable energy each year.
