Scholarships and the Lend a Hand Community Benefit Fund

Tilt Renewables is committed to open and honest dialogue with all stakeholders, with an aim to build and enhance community acceptance and trust in all projects and in the renewable energy industry as a whole.

We welcome your feedback if you have any concerns and are happy to assist with any questions you may have about the project.

We are also committed to providing financial support to the local community through community benefit programs. This includes the Salt Creek Wind Farm Lend a Hand Community Benefit Fund.

The program provides funds for community projects and initiatives in the area and is administered by an independent community group.

The fund is in addition to the Salt Creek Education Scholarship Fund which commenced in 2019.

In recognition of the importance of tertiary education and its associated costs, Salt Creek Wind Farm host landholder and Tilt Renewables have established an annual scholarship of $30,000 for the benefit of a deserving local applicant.

Rural students face additional accommodation costs compared to metropolitan students. The scholarship goes towards accommodation costs so that they have more time to study, have a balanced lifestyle and not have to work long hours to support themselves.
