Environmental and Social Governance
The Bald Hills Wind Farm Community Fund (BHWFCF) was established by the Bald Hills Wind Farm Pty Ltd (BHWF) in March 2015 to provide funding for projects of social, economic or environmental benefit to the Tarwin Lower, Venus Bay, and Walkerville districts in South Gippsland.
The BHWFCF has allocated approximately $25,000 per year to community projects and is committed to do so for each year that the wind farm is in operation. Local organisations can apply for project grants and must demonstrate that their community project provides an overall benefit to the district and the wider community.
During the 2017 financial year, the BHWFCF committee granted funds to 13 community organisation recipients.
