Through our Clyde Extension wind farm we make around £300,000 per year available for community and charitable projects. Over its lifetime we expect to invest £7.5million in local projects.


The Clyde Extension Fund is split three ways. The Main Fund covers the Community Council areas of: Quothquan and Thankerton; Duneaton; Biggar; and Symington.

Applications are open for the Main Fund, which covers the four Community Council areas listed above. Eligibility and other information can be found on the fund guidelines document below.

There are four funding rounds per year, although the panel is willing to consider applications under £5,000 and urgent applications outwith these cycles.

The deadlines for applying to the fund are:

  • 31st March 2021
  • 30th June 2021
  • 30th September 2021
  • 31st December 2021
