'Buy Scottish' Policy

MOU signing

We are committed to working with Scotland to increase renewable energy development and deployment, to tackle climate change and boost the economy.

Our ‘Buy Scottish’ policy is a crucial component of all our projects as we maintain our commitment to Scotland and its green energy industry, whilst ensuring our inward investment to the Scottish economy remains paramount.

Community Windpower currently has a total investment in Scotland to date of over £440 million for eight operational wind farms, increasing to £625 million by 2023 and £2 billion by 2025.

Through our ‘Buy Scottish’ policy, Community Windpower works closely with Scottish civil, electrical and engineering contractors and local businesses to construct our wind farms. Recently, through the construction and installation of our Aikengall IIa Community Wind Farm we utilised the expertise of RJ McLeod, one of Scotland’s largest civil engineering and building contractors and Scottish turbine erection experts WindHoist Limited.

To further facilitate this process we have previously hosted a series of ‘Meet the Buyer’ events across Southern Scotland. These have been significantly successful, helping us to identify many local companies who will be utilised for smaller contracts and services for our wind farms. We wish to work with local Scottish firms, large and small, who can partner with us during the construction and operational periods of our projects and we will be holding more Meet the Buyer events in due course.

Mr G Money, Commercial Director of Barr Quarries who attended a 'Meet the Buyer' event said:

The Meet the Buyer event provided our business with the platform to learn more about the projects and the potential opportunities they can create for our products and services.

It was a great opportunity to discuss our capabilities with senior project and supply chain personnel from Community Windpower as well as to network with other local suppliers and Dumfries and Galloway Council.’

Mr Martin Redpath, Midlothian Utilities Limited who worked on our Aikengall Community Wind Farms, said:

‘We have been working closely with CWL over the past 12 years. Community Windpower has helped with the continuing growth of our business and help us train new staff, both Male and Female of all ages and from the local area.'
