Benefitting from commercial projects
Local Energy Scotland provides support to community groups to help maximise the gain from commercial renewables developments, whether through the creation of a community benefit fund or in-kind benefits.
If you are looking to engage with commercial developers regarding community benefits and want the best deal or if your community is already in receipt of community benefits, we can support you.Find out more about community benefits from commercial projects
