Fife Wind Farm to Fund Apprenticeship Training

Carbon Free, a wind farm developer, has partnered with Adam Smith College in Fife, Scotland in a unique community benefit scheme. According to the agreement, the revenues from the electricity generated will support a minimum of 5 apprenticeships per year over 25 years, to provide employment opportunities to people living near the wind farm, and to address skills shortages in the engineering sector. The 8-turbine Earlseat wind farm was approved by local councils on September 20th and is expected to be built by the end of 2013. For a fuller news report go to:
