The Taralga Wind Farm Community Enhancement Fund provides financial contributions to local community projects and initiatives – such as equipment purchases, facility construction, renovation/rehabilitation projects, new programs or special funding that will enhance the community’s quality of life and wellbeing. The Fund aims to support projects and initiatives that contribute to communities within 20km of the wind farm.
The Fund commenced in 2016 and is managed by a committee comprising two community representatives, two Upper Lachlan Shire Council representatives and a Pacific Hydro representative.
Since the commissioning of Taralga Wind Farm in 2016, the Fund has provided more than $730,000 to 53 local sustainable projects. The Fund is a part of Pacific Hydro’s Community Benefit Sharing Program, which has provided more than $4.9 million to over 1000 projects across Australia since 2005.
