Fair wind support

Financial support for projects aiming to preserve environmental values in wind park regions or promoting wind power in general

An opportunity for schools and third sector organisations

Every year TuuliWatti grants financial support to projects that are aiming to preserve environmental values in the regions where the company has wind parks. In addition, projects that promote wind power in general are eligible to apply for support. E.g. third sector organisations, schools and sports clubs in the region can apply for Fair wind support.

TuuliWatti sponsors mainly concrete projects, such as new balls to a football club or catering for a camp school, which is why we recommend the applicants to describe their project and its costs as clearly as possible. TuuliWatti makes the decisions on projects to be supported three times a year: at the end of April, August and December. It is important to submit the applications two weeks prior to these deadlines at the latest.

The projects selected to receive Fair wind support will be informed directly.
TuuliWatti reserves the right to decide on selection criteria.
Insufficient applications cannot be handled.
