From Onshore Wind
The role of local and community renewables is being increasingly recognised as a vital component in the delivery of government targets and it is seen as an important catalyst for sustainable development. Local ownership of renewable energy projects can improve the economy for communities, create opportunities for local businesses and maximise the sustainable use of resources for the benefit of local people. SgurrEnergy has experience of developing wind, hydro, solar PV and bioenergy projects at a local scale, assisting community groups, farmers, crofters, estate owners and businesses to identify, develop and build renewable energy projects across all the suitable technologies. We bring the expertise of a world class team of consultants to small scale and local projects, providing a comprehensive package of consultancy and implementation services.
Some of our community renewables services include:
- Initial site survey and feasibility
- Detailed design
- Planning consents
- Grid connection application
- Financing advice, including grant support
- Construction management
- Operation and maintenance
- Advice on local use of community-generated energy.
The multi-disciplinary team tailor services to the individual requirements of each community-scale project, ensuring that a successful project is developed for the benefit of the community and its people.
