Powerful community

Community energy on Barra and Vatersay

Community energy on Barra and Vatersay

At the most westerly point of Scotland, wind is a constant feature of life for people living the Outer Hebrides islands of Barra and Vatersay. Since developing their community wind turbine in 2014, they’ve been reaping the benefits, with the green energy it generates creating an income for reinvestment in the community. Euan Scott, Project Co-ordinator at Barra and Vatersay Wind Energy, tells us what that means for people on the islands.

Communities across Scotland have been the first to reap the benefits of the abundant resources nature provides to them. Fine out how they’ve pioneered community renewable energy projects, collectively developed and owned by local people.
