Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund

Pacific Hydro’s Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund delivers a portion of revenue from the Clements Gap Wind Farm back into the local community each year, for the life of the wind farm.

Each year, eligible community groups and not-for-profit organisations can apply for project funding up to $10,000 from a pool of $55,000.

Since the commissioning of Clements Gap Wind Farm in 2008, the Fund has provided more than $552,000 to over 136 local sustainable projects.

The Fund is a part of Pacific Hydro’s Community Investment Program, which has provided more than $3.7 Million to over 800 projects across Australia since 2005.
