A recent community project on Tiree allowed a wind turbine to be built at the North East end of the island. (other side of the island from Struthan Cottage!). Electricity that this turbine generates will benefit the islanders and any excess , sold back to the power company with the revenue going to assisting community projects in and around Tiree. This has largely been welcomed by the islanders. Ground works at the site began on Monday 10th August. Contractors are working on the site between the hours of 8am and 6pm.
There will likely be an increase of traffic on the road (mainly the B8069) for the next 6 to 8 weeks and the Directors of Tiree Renewable Energy have apologised in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. The building site is subject to the Construction (Design and Management Regulations 2007 (CDM Regs) and to comply with Health and Safety Regulations only authorised persons will be permitted to access the site. If you have any enquiries please phone 01879 220074 or call at the Trust office and speak with Liz.
