The Fund was created after discussions between Caithness Chamber of Commerce and Baillie Wind Farm Ltd who had a vision to see a wider area of Caithness and North Sutherland benefit from local wind farms.
The Fund promotes economic growth and assists small businesses through contributions it receives from developers and businesses either through a multi-year commitment or one-off contributions. The Fund’s main funder is Baillie Wind Farm Ltd which contributes £25,000 RPI per annum (a 25-year commitment), with additional contributions from Cavendish Nuclear, Dounreay and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
