MSP encourages community to reap turbine benefits

North east MSP Mark McDonald is encouraging residents of the Udny community to get involved in the Udny Community Trust Company, which will be dispersing funds raised from the community wind turbine. The parish of Udny stands to benefit in coming years from funds generated by the turbine.

Mr McDonald said: “The story of the Udny turbine is a fantastic example of a community taking initiative in order to reap the benefits of renewable energy. The turbine is set to raise significant sums which will be used to benefit the community, and I would encourage as many people as possible to get involved in the Trust to ensure that they have a say on how the money is spent.”
