MSP praises Udny turbine success

Lib Dem MSP Alison McInnes has praised Udny Community Wind Turbine team for winning the Community Initiative category in the 2011 Scottish Green Energy Awards.

“I was delighted to be present at the awards in the National Museum of Scotland to see that the Udny initiative had been successful”, said Mrs McInnes, who has written congratulating the group. “It is highly commendable that the wind turbine is totally community owned with the profits ploughed back into the area. This is an excellent example of how a community can benefit from green energy generation.
