A wind turbine project supported by Ore Valley Housing Association has started to produce green energy for the first time. The Dundonald Wind Turbine in Cardenden was launched by the Ore Valley Group, which is led by the Association. It is a project which has been ongoing for four years, but after reaching financial close in November last year, it has been full steam ahead, with the construction phase being completed over the Christmas period. The final step was connecting the turbine to the grid, enabling it to start producing energy. The turbine will benefit the local community, not only by providing clean, green energy but also through funds raised through profits. Ore Valley intends to use at least 50% of the profits to provide support for the community through grants and investments for local projects and enterprises.
