Very chuffed and proud to have signed up as a part of this. Will there be just online proof of membership? No problem if so, but I would like my nephew/ nieces & their children to see my involvement in their renewable energy future.

In 2012 Jon Halle and Share Energy introduced Dingwall to the Cooperative Power concept and Scotland's first wholly Cooperatively owned turbine was built in 2013. In 2016 part of that team raised £2.5million for the worlds first community owned whisky distillery 100% powered by green energy. Small wind Coop is again leading the way with diverse thinking on both creating and sharing viable energy projects that will no doubt add value to their areas and create further projects that are sustainable.

janetalty - Thank you - in a word, yes, you can will shares in Small Wind Co-op to your grandchildren. You can also buy shares on behalf of grandchildren which get automatically transferred to them when they reach 16.

There aren't that many reasons to be cheerful out there at the moment but this project is one of them. This is great for our future!

As I'm pushing 80 but hale and hearty so hope to enjoy this investment for many years. But : can I will it to my grandchildren ??

Best of luck to the Small Wind Coop - helping farmers like Aled & Alister harvest the power of the wind for the benefit of their community. I really like the way that this can scale up, linking small scale farm-based renewable energy schemes into a combined force for the good of us all.
