Scottish Wind Energy

Aberdeenshire farmer and ice cream giant Maitland Mackie is putting forward a proposal to create a rolling fund of £10 million to help rural areas in Scotland to benefit by as much as £1 billion from the huge profits of wind energy. This ultimate figure is twice the revenue created by farming in Scotland.
He wants farmers rather than multinational energy companies to reap the profits from the best wind farm sites and is working with The Community Renewable Implementation Group (Crig) to consider the availability of grants to help local initiatives to negotiate the minefield of complicated planning processes.
