Community Gain Scheme

Bord na Móna Powergen set up the Bruckana Community Gain Scheme in 2014 thanks to the help and cooperation of the communities’ local to Bruckana Wind Farm. An annual fund of €1,000/MW per installed capacity per annum, index-linked for the lifetime of each project was established for the wind farm. The annual fund for the Bruckana Wind Farm Community Gain Scheme is €42,000.

Bord na Móna Powergen administers the scheme and an awards committee is drawn from the local communities of Crosspatrick and Moyne/Templetuohy. This local committee decides which projects are granted financial support. The funding has benefited schools, sports clubs, general amenity, social initiatives, as well as community facilities. Please see lists below for previous recipients and projects.
