Financial participation refers to securing the means to finance the wind farm and to actively involve people by investing in the wind farm. Examples of financial participation are:
- Bonds: low risk, lower return;
- Shares: higher risk, higher return;
A customised financial participation model is prepared for every wind farm with the assistance of financial and legal specialists. This model answers questions such as: which type of financial participation is suitable for which target group? Which costs for a wind farm would I like to finance through the aforementioned forms of crowdfunding? Which costs do I want to have financed? The inclusion of construction costs for instance, involves a bigger risk for investors. This could be part of a wider participation plan.
Compensation relates to the ways in which adverse effects are reduced and mitigated. We like to help you with ideas about the various forms. Examples are:
- An area fund to improve the well-being of the community;
- Creating work with work: specifically using some of the wind farm’s yield for a project;
- Immediate financial compensation: making an amount of money available for a specific number of affected parties and/or local residents;
- A discount on the price of electricity, with the discount increasing the closer you get to the wind farm;
- Plan compensation: making an amount of money available by changing the zoning plan amendment or the zoning plan.
