Crystal Rig Wind Farm

Community walking beside wind turbines

Community Benefit

To date, Crystal Rig Wind Farm has delivered more than £2.6m in community benefit funds to groups in East Lothian and the Scottish Borders. Crystal Rig IV will see over £8m distributed locally throughout the lifetime of the project.

We are working with the communities closest to the wind farm to explore how we can design a community benefit fund that will support their local aspirations, as well as tackling wide reaching challenges such as fuel poverty and energy efficiency.

We recently formed a Community Liaison Group (CLG) with representatives from:

  • Garvald and Morham Community Council
  • Innerwick Forum
  • East Lammermuir Community Council
  • Lammermuir Community Council
  • Abbey St. Bathans, Bonkyl and Preston Community Council
  • Cockburnspath and Cove Community Council

The CLG will meet bi-monthly to:

  • Provide construction updates
  • Share feedback on how the work on site is progressing
  • Provide a forum for discussion of issues relating to the delivery of the infrastructure on the site and traffic management
  • Discuss the Community Benefit Fund

If you have any questions about the CLG please email communities@fredolsen.com or call 07435 763 900
