Wheedlemont Turbine Fund
A payment for the first year has been received and applications for grants invited. A sum of £9660 was paid to RCT and 8 projects were approved totalling £4670 and were awarded grants. The remaining sum will be carried forward to next year for another round of funding.
Unfortunately, due to miscalculation by the developers we have been overpaid. This will be adjusted over the coming years but it appears to mean that there will be no further payments until probably 2022. A revised projection of income has been provided.
In 2023 the Fund has been operating for 5 years, with £10400 distributed within the Rhynie parish. Approximately £8000 has also been distributed to Lumsden.
