Kintore and District Community Council are to begin a study to identify opportunities to establish a renewable energy project in Kintore area.

It is planned that any project established, will deliver regular renewable energy income to benefit the community in and around the Kintore area.

The Community Council are seeking landowners who are interested in a commercial arrangement to provide land for a renewable energy project.

Options to be considered will include Solar, Hydro and Wind sources to generate power to be fed into the grid under the Governments’ Feed-In Tariffs scheme.

The project is being assisted by Community Energy Scotland under the CARES scheme.

Interested parties please contact on info@kintorecommunitycouncil.co.uk or Brian Johnstone - KDCC Chairman on 07824 834193 for further information.
