At Longburn, an additional Community Shared Ownership model means that 5 percent of the net profits of the wind farm will be shared back into the community every year. ERG’s Local Procurement Policy also affords local contractors a 5% price advantage when tendering for contracts on its wind farms.

We have also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Scotland’s only turbine tower manufacturer, CS Wind (, to work together on our Scottish projects, retaining as much investment within Scotland as possible.
