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. We want 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 are working 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 planning to co-fund and co-deliver a series of community projects in areas like 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 well underway, CWP Asset Management and its Consortium Partners; Vestas and Zenviron together with TransGrid are undertaking construction of a different kind through the Construction in the Community program.
Construction in the Community is one of a series of programs that will deliver long-lasting benefits to the communities surrounding Sapphire Wind Farm. The program is intended to support local based organisations and community groups to complete necessary construction works through the provision of monetary grants and resource 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.
