We may lament the Argyll rain but it, along with Ardentinny’s particular topography, provide the perfect constituents for the efficient production of hydro electricity. So much so that the village now has 3 schemes in operation with another about to come online.
These, while making a significant contribution to Scotland’s renewable energy output, also make a statutory annual financial contribution to the community. The latter is managed by Ardentinny Renewables Trust which has just published its end of year newsletter (below).
Any Ardentinny resident or group who are members of ART may apply for funding. Membership is free. Application forms can be downloaded below.
