In June 2015, PNE WIND UK Limited was acquired by Brookfield Renewable, and is now known as Brookfield Renewable UK Limited. All materials and applications related to projects will now be under the Brookfield brand.
Community Benefits & Local Ownership
A Community Liaison Group (CLG) has been created to ensure that the proposed development involves local people and takes account of their concerns. You can find out more about your CLG members here. CLG minutes are available to download below. For further information regarding community development, please contact us on 0131 243 9100 or via email to email@example.com.
We will pay £5,000 per MW of installed capacity into a community development fund annually over the lifetime of the wind farm.
To ensure compliance with the Scottish Government's publication 'Good Practice Principles for Shared Ownership of Onshore Renewable Energy Developments', Brookfield has an offer in place whereby the local communities surrounding the project can take a stake of up to 30% in the Larbrax Wind Farm. This forms part of our ongoing desire to ensure our proposal will fully empower the surrounding communities to be involved in Scotland's renewable energy supply, and gain the associated long-term economic benefits.

As part of an extensive engagement programme, a seond round of public exhibitions took place on the 2 and 3 December in Portpatrick and Leswalt. The information that was presented to the local community is available in the downloads section below.
We are committed to supporting local communities close to our wind farm sites and we are keen to support local community projects wherever we can. In November 2013 we sponsored a renewables workshop, which was run by Rowanbank Environmental Education, at Leswalt Primary School. We also supported the Portpatrick Lifeboat Festival with a donation towards their fireworks display. We would welcome suggestions of how we can continue to be a good neighbour.
