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 are encouraged to apply for project funding up to $10,000 from a pool of $55,000.

Since the commissioning of Clements Gap Wind Farm in 2010, the Fund has provided more than $663,000 to 157 local sustainable projects. The Fund is a part of Pacific Hydro’s Community Investment Program, which has provided more than $4.9 million to over 1000 projects across Australia since 2005.
