SSE Sustainable Development Fund - Now Open for Applications
31st October 2017
The Sustainable Development Fund is in addition to our local community funds and supports strategic projects in the regions where SSE is operating. It allows the benefits of our renewable energy developments to be accessible to a wider area and is directed to projects that can achieve significant impact in local communities. So far we have supported £3million in grants through the Sustainable Development Fund.
The fund supports projects which take a longer term view by delivering transformational social, economic and/or environmental changes in the community and develop sustainable ventures for the future.
We will make funds available within any local authority where an SSE wind farm was constructed after 1 January 2012 and expect the fund could be worth over £50 million over the next 25 years.
