Landowner Backs Community Renewables Projects

Simon Miller, Chief Executive of Luss Estates, said: "In recent years, landowners and communities across Scotland have begun exploring new ways of working together, and Luss Estates is no exception. Developments in renewables technologies are opening up opportunities for communities, particularly in rural Scotland, to provide long term funding solutions for important local projects. By combining our land and management resources with the aspirations and drive of local development trusts, you have a potent combination.

"Both Helensburgh Community Wind Farm and the Ant' Srang Hydro Scheme are projects initiated by, and for, local communities with the potential to deliver transformative returns. Luss Estates supports their aspirations, and looks forward to forging a new style of working relationship with development trusts, as we pursue our vision to protect, preserve and sustainably develop the land, villages and surrounding communities."
