“Scottish island generates enough power through wind and solar to meet the needs of the community”

“Canna Renewable Energy and Electrification Ltd (CREEL) generated enough power through wind and solar to meet the needs of the community. For almost 20 years, Canna and Sanday’s 18 residents have had to rely on three diesel generators for power, as the islands are not connected to the National Grid. As a result of a community venture, Canna Renewable Energy and Electrification Ltd. (CREEL), power is now generated through wind and solar and linked to a battery storage system, which relegates the old generators to occasional back-up use.”
