We’re now in the final stages of getting through the community fund ideas – it’s been inspiring looking through all the potential that the community sees for themselves for the future. It’s a challenging time for lots of communities. Big budget cuts and changes in the ways things can be funded are now a reality – it’s a moving picture. Of course this is a challenge for the work to establish the fund. How do you think of the future when there is a lot of need developing in the here and now? But when we’re talking about 20 years plus of funding it’s also creates an opportunity – to sit down, think things through and plan for the future.
It has been a long process, but we are pleased that the final turbine has now been installed. This means that the installation team have placed 684 large components over the last year. The main challenge has been the unpredictable weather onsite of course.
The team continues to bring the turbines into the operational phase step by step.
