Our aim is to make connecting generation to our network as simple as possible for communities and we have developed a bespoke Community Guide for groups looking to establish a community energy project.
This guide will provide you with a greater understanding of the process for obtaining a grid connection, the information that is required to make an application for your particular scheme, what the associated timescales are and also provide you with useful contact information.
You may wish to seek external help from Community Energy Scotland who are a registered charity that provides practical help for communities on green energy development and energy conservation.
Additionally Local Energy Scotland helps communities and rural businesses via a wide range of support, including: Free advice and support along with advice on funding streams.
Are you a community council? Visit the the Community Councils of Scotland website where you will find a comprehensive website to support and promote community councils through advice and resources.
Of course if you’d rather discuss your project prior to your submission please get in touch. Our local District contacts, Account Managers and Distributed Generation experts contact details can be found on our Connections Contact page.
