Community Owned Power Schemes

Isle Of Eigg Information BoardsThere is widespread interest in the concept of community owned renewable energy schemes – particularly solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to provide power into the grid offering:

  • Income generation for the community shareholders of the scheme;
  • Savings in electricity costs for associated buildings;
  • Encourage a wider social integration with renewable energy generation

Building rooftops (schools, leisure centres etc.) are good sites – but issues concerned with access, maintenance, insurance and legal ownership need to be considered.

Alternatively, PV generation can be installed onto dual purpose structures in open spaces that already are used or owned by the community.

For example, in car parks where they can  also provide public charging spaces for electric cars & bikes encouraging the use of these as a viable means of transport.
