The Islay Energy Trust (IET) is a community owned organisation that aims to develop renewable energy projects for the benefit of the community whilst reducing Islay’s carbon footprint.
We work on a range of community energy and energy efficiency projects and manage the community wind turbine on behalf of the Islay Energy Community Benefit Society (IECBS). We also distribute profits from the turbine on behalf of IECBS via the Community Benefit Fund.
If you are over 17 and live or have a property on Islay, Jura or Colonsay then IET would welcome you as a member. Download an application form now or drop into our Bowmore Office to pick one up.
The Islay Energy Trust is grateful for the support of HIE on the Community Renewables and Biofuels Projects.
Our Community Renewables projects are also supported by Community Energy Scotland.
The Tidal Energy Project is being developed by ScottishPower Renewables.
