Our Partnership Proposal
• Guaranteed minimum annual revenue based on £5,000 per MW installed
• The opportunity to create local community trusts or bodies to develop and then deliver local action plans using the guaranteed long term funding provided by the partnership
• We will look to ensure from Banks Renewables that a minimum percentage of the total Birneyknowe Wind Farm construction cost will be directed through local companies
• Initial consultations have indicated that a major benefit of the scheme could be the creation of permanent job opportunities and exploring how existing jobs could be secured
• We are looking to see how this could happen and we would welcome ideas from members of the local community on how this could be achieved. We want to work in partnership with your local community to create a positive legacy. Please feel free to contact us to let us know how this partnership could help achieve your community’s aspirations

Why we think Birneyknowe is an excellent site:
• Excellent wind resource
• The site does not lie in any special protected areas for landscaping, nature conservation or any archaeological or historical designations
• The proposal could support targeted training and apprenticeship scheme, to help get local people into employment
• With a commitment to use local businesses we will support existing jobs and create new job opportunities in the area
• The site has the potential to make a significant contribution to Scotland’s renewable energy and climate change targets
