Shooglenifty, the ‘acid croft’ band with Uist con­nec­tions, is among the lat­est to show sup­port for Uist Wind.

The com­mu­nity share of­fer which aims to reach at least £350,000 has now reached £260,000, 75 per cent of its tar­get.

‘North Uist De­vel­op­ment Com­pany (NUDC) is for­tu­nate we are able to ex­tend the dead­line for com­plet­ing the share of­fer,’ ex­plained NUDC chair­per­son Mustapha Hocine. ‘So please con­sider mak­ing an in­vest­ment. Al­though £350,000 is our min­i­mum and is now in sight, the more we raise, the more prof­itable this project will be for our com­mu­nity.

‘Al­though much of the in­vest­ment so far has come from the lo­cal com­mu­nity – and it is great to see that Uist is get­ting be­hind this project – you don’t have to be lo­cal to in­vest.’

The North Uist Re­new­able En­ergy Project aims to raise £2.3 mil­lion over 22 years for de­vel­op­ment projects on the is­land.
