community sharesFor major projects it may be worth considering community shares as an option. Last week Applecross Apple Juice Hydro Scheme reached their £750,000 investment to construct a Hydro Scheme, amazing result for a population of 225 people.http://www.applecrosshydro.scot/news/  Closer to home, Huntly has opened a share issue to construct a windturbine which will fund community projects http://www.huntlydevelopmenttrust.org/wp-content/uploads/GRE-panels-low-res-for-web.pdf

Share issues can be used for any projects, not only energy schemes, it is worth having a look if you have a large project – http://communitysharesscotland.org.uk/
