Welcome to Kintyre Wind

Maximising Community Share Ownership in Kintyre Windfarms for the benefit of local communities

Kintyre Wind represents a collaborative project involving Community Councils across Kintyre and EKREG Ltd to facilitate and deliver Community Shared Ownership (CSO) to the Kintyre communities.  

As Windfarm developers offer Community Shared Ownership in consented windfarms to the impacted communities, EKREG Ltd will lead the negotiations and then bring the offer to the communities.  

If the offer is acceptable to the communities, a Multi Community Benefit Society will be established to invest in the local Windfarm.  

As the Multi Community Benefit Societies receive the income from the Windfarms, funds will be donated to the Anchor Charity Beneficiaries which are  local charities, nominated by the community councils and whose purposes are to benefit the local communities through community development, education and regeneration.
