CES welcomes membership milestone
Community Energy Scotland celebrated a milestone in its growing membership at its recent AGM. Our community members now number 400.
The Gallan Head Trust on Lewis is the latest non-profit organisation to join CES. They have recently purchased former Ministry of Defence land for community use, with help from the Scottish Land Fund. They are keen to work with CES to build facilities and offer services that are energy efficient and make the most of local resources.
Marion O'Hara of CES presents a certificate to William Mansfield-Townsend from our 400th community member, the Gallan Head Trust.
CES campaigns to Scottish and UK authorities on behalf of all its members. The more groups who join us, the stronger is our voice for the community energy sector.
Members are entitled to a range of benefits – including detailed technical support from the CES team as well as information exchange with voluntary, commercial and research organisations in Scotland and other countries. We're already looking forward to hitting 500! Find out more about membership.
Also at the AGM, there were changes to the board of directors with David Newman from the Western Isles standing down after 3½ years valuable service, for which members present showed their appreciation. Alan Hobbett from Berwickshire was elected to the board and Carola Bell re-elected under the constitution.
