Welcome to the Islay Energy Community Benefit Society Website
Our aim is to benefit the community through the development and operation of renewable energy projects on, or in the seas around the island of Islay. The society is owned and controlled by its shareholders, who as members have one vote each, irrespective of the size of their shareholding. Generic information on Community Benefit Societies can be found here.
There is one energy project underway, the Wind Turbine Project. The turbine was erected by 31st October 2014, and produced its first electricity on the 13th December. After some delays and the holiday period, the turbine was finally declared up and running at full capacity on Friday 13th February 2015.
You can track its performance since then here.
