All the community are invited to join us to hear about progress with the UistWind project, currently under construction, and give their views on how the community should spend the future profits from the wind farm. The UistWind Construction BBQ is being held at Claddach Kirkibost, from 7pm to 9.30pm; hosted by North Uist Development Company, who are delivering the UistWind project for the benefit of the community.
The barbecue is a chance for everyone to “eat, drink and be merry” to celebrate the community’s success at raising the money they needed to enable the wind farm project to go ahead, as well as to gauge views on the best use of the eventual profits. It is also being held as an opportunity to hear from turbine manufacturers Enercon, who will be coming on site from the 3rd of June to prepare to lift the turbines into place. Enercon’s project manager, Richard Biggs, will be speaking and answering questions.

Directors from The North Uist Development Company will be taking part in the conversations at the primary school, along with representatives from Strathclyde University, Community Energy Scotland, ENERCON and others.
Beginning at 9.15am and lasting until 2pm, there will be sessions on topics including climate change, what we can do about climate change, renewable energy, who ENERCON are and how a wind turbine works.
