Knockbain Farm / Dingwall Co-op
In More Detail
This 250kW wind turbine is the first 100% co-operatively owned wind development in Scotland and a fine example of the alternative funding structures that are available for communities, farmers and land managers. The Co-op was launched in September 2013 and the turbine was commissioned on the 16th June 2014. There are 179 members of the co-op some of who were available on the open day to discuss the project along with the Lockett family who own the development site. The open day focussed on all key aspects of the development including planning and grid connection although specific focus will be given to the co-op funding model used and the SEIS and EIS opportunities available for other renewable energy projects.
