Community Energy Demonstrator Project Launched

On Sunday, LINLITH-GO-SOLAR was launched by Linlithgow Community Development Trust (LCDT) in partnership with Linlithgow Rugby Club and Scottish Communities Finance Ltd. The aim is to build a solar energy demonstrator project financed by a community bond, to which members of the local community are invited to subscribe. Bonds are just £50 and you can purchase one or many – they are paid back with interest after 5, 8 or 11 years – you choose. The 25 solar panels will be fitted to the Indoor training Centre roof and the Rugby Club will get the electricity generated at a “locked in” price – minimal benefit in early years but realising a considerable saving in later years.
