We believe that building and operating our own community wind farm will transform the vulnerable economy on our island. So do nearly 200 of our supporters who have already helped us raise £333,550. We need to hit the £350,000 target by the end of the year. Can you help us?

We have financial support from a leading green energy lender and now need to make the final push for capital raised through our community share offer. That could be you! Shares start from £250 and you don’t have to live in Uist to invest. Once built, we will use the income generate by selling our renewable electricity to invest in the community, create jobs and support local initiatives. That’s over £2.33 million during the life time of the wind farm – all for spend in the North Uist community.
In addition to the share offer we are also running a crowdfunding campaign to raise additional capital for the project to go ahead. You can donate to the fund in exchange for rewards. You can find details by clicking UistWind Crowdfunder.
We must meet our target by the end of the year to achieve the community benefit that we need. We’re so close, help us by investing in your share of the North Uist wind farm today.
