Community Energy

Coigach Community Development Company

 

Coigach Community Development Company (CCDC) has developed a range of energy projects to provide sustainable income to fund long term local aspirations.

Their wholly-owned wind generating project is now producing power which is supplied to the National Grid and is forecast to bring over £2 million of community benefit funds over its 20 year life. They are also working with the Scottish Wildlife Trust to develop a hydro generating scheme on croft land.

HIE’s Community Capacity Building programme is supporting a local development officer and providing specialised assistance to reach financial close and the next stage of development.
