Financial benefits

Shetland Charitable Trust's share in the Viking Wind Farm will earn it an income to use for the good of the Shetland people.

The trust currently spends around £8 million per year on supporting the elderly and vulnerable, local sports, the arts and heritage in Shetland as well as a wide variety of community organisations.

In addition to the income generated for the trust, the wind farm will pay out a community benefit worth around £2.2 million every year during the 25-year lifetime of the project. A co-operative group has been set up under the auspices of the Association of Shetland Community Councils with a view to taking on responsibility for managing how this money is distributed.
