Barra, community wind turbine

As the southernmost inhabited islands of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland Barra and Vatersay bear the brunt of whatever weather the Atlantic throws at them. Not that the locals mind with a community owned turbine harnessing the gales to generate electricity; the income generated from the sale of the electricity is set to provide the local community with an annual income for the foreseeable future.

It is forecast to generate a community dividend of £50,000 to £100,000 each year of its 20-25 year lifespan in addition to covering the core costs of the local community company and financing a strategic fund for capital projects.

Projects such as the Barra wind turbine are financed from the money deposited by our customers.
