Investors are being sought for a long-awaited renewables scheme on North Uist which will raise revenue for the island for the next 22 years. Around £1.1m is still required to get the Uist Wind project up and running after planning permission was finally granted for two wind turbines near Clachan. A community share offer was launched on the island at the weekend with investors promised a 4 per cent annual return on their money. It is hoped the renewables scheme will attract investment from both islanders and those on the mainland.
