We are delighted to announce that the site is now generating and fully commissioned. Despite supply delays that made the time-line slip by several months, we managed to complete the project two months ahead of the Feed-in Tariff deadline. Several local people have been trained to look after basic maintenance making this a community-run project from day one.
Kinlochbervie Community Energy Ltd hope to hold an official opening in September. The delay is to ensure that the landscape, on a particularly difficult site, has time to settle and to allow local school children to be involved on their return to school after the summer holidays.
Located by the A838, just past Rhiconiche, the hydro project is wholly owned by Kinlochbervie Community Energy Limited (KCEL), a Society for the Benefit of the Community.
