Renewable Energy Fund (REF)
The Renewable Energy Fund is a fund set up and administered by the Council to distribute developer contributions from Wind Farm developments within East Ayrshire. There are currently three operational wind farms making a contribution to the Renewable Energy Fund:-
Whitelee (View or download REF criteria)
Harehill Extensions (View or download REF criteria)
Galawhistle (View or download REF criteria)
Applications to the REF are welcomed from constituted voluntary and community groups; social economy or social enterprise projects or from Local Authority or other agencies (only where the project is community based, is new and does not represent a substitution of core business activities).
Projects must also fit the REF criteria.
If you have a project in mind that you think meets the criteria, please contact the Democratic Services Section.
The application form and guidance are available to download.
