Community Legacy Projects
Leaving a lasting legacy
It’s about the legacy you leave. We are providing a clean energy alternative that will benefit generations to come. But that’s not enough. During the construction phase we wanted to contribute to the local communities that have made our wind farm possible: leaving a material legacy that makes a difference to everyday life for years to come.
We worked hand-in-hand to develop and deliver a series of longer-term, legacy projects that will span the life of Sapphire Wind Farm. Along with our contractors, we’re planned, funded and delivered a series of community projects in areas including construction and education.
Sapphire Wind Farm is leaving a lasting legacy through its Construction in the Community program
With construction of the Sapphire Wind Farm now completed, CWP Asset Management and its Consortium Partners; Vestas and Zenviron together with TransGrid undertook the Construction in the Community program.
Construction in the Community was one of a series of programs that will continue to deliver long-lasting benefits to the communities surrounding Sapphire Wind Farm. The program supported locally based organisations and community groups to complete necessary construction works through the provision of grants and support.
The successful Construction in the Community recipients were:
- Kings Plains Rural Fire Brigade: concrete apron
- Glen Industries: initiative garden
- National Transport Museum, Inverell: expo ground improvements
- Glen Innes District Community Centre: refurbishment of Community Hall
- Glen Innes Arts Council: loading ramp at Chapel Theatre
- Elsmore Soldiers Memorial Hall: ceiling replacement
- Delungra Showground Committee: painting of facilities
- Ross Hill Primary School P & C: concrete slab
- Glen Innes Basketball Association: amenity improvements
We will share updates on the progress of these projects on our website over coming months.
