Pacific Hydro’s Great South West Sustainable Communities Fund delivers a portion of revenue from the Portland Wind Energy Project, Yambuk, and Codrington Wind Farms back into the local community each year, for the life of the wind farms.
Each year, eligible community groups and not-for-profit organisations are encouraged to apply for project funding up to $10,000 from a pool of $186,000.
The Fund is a part of Pacific Hydro’s Community Investment Program, which has provided more than $4.8 Million to over 980 projects across Australia since 2005.
The 2021 Great South West Sustainable Communities Fund is now closed.
