Gineadoir Gaoithe Teo has over the last many years contributed funds to local schools and other community causes. In line with new Best Practice Guidelines adopted by IWEA ( Irish Wind Energy Association), Gweedore Wind Farm will be contributing in excess of EUR30,000 annually for local community benefit. Along with the current contribution from the old windfarm, this will represent an investment of over EUR40,000 per annum. It is envisaged that the windfarm directors will engage more directly with the local community to reach agreement on how the money should best be spent.
