Renewables

In recent years there has been an enormous expansion in a variety of renewable energy products across the Highlands & Islands. Such developments offer new opportunities to private landowners, estates (whether in community ownership or not), community landlords, crofters, common grazers, grazings committees, community development companies, trusts or charitable bodies considering their own energy products.
