Local Community Benefits
There are many rural economic benefits attributed to the development of a wind farm
- Landowners bear no financial risk in the project: At no stage during the development and construction does the landowner, bear any financial risk or liability associated with the project. Once the wind farm is operational the landowner receives a yearly rental payment for the lifetime of the project.
- Community benefits: Mainstream SA intends to develop a Community Trust Fund with local decision makers for every successfully built project. The purpose of this fund will be to support sustainable development in the surrounding area.
- Other local community benefits include an increased demand for local goods and services during the feasibility and construction phases of development, the creation of temporary jobs during the construction phase and a small number of permanent positions during the wind farm's operational life
