Islay Energy Trust (IET) researched and developed a plan to put a wind turbine on Islay. IET set up Islay Community Benefit Society (IECBS) so members of the community could invest in the project, and community benefit funding could be distributed in the local area. 

Islay Community Wind Turbine was completed in 2015, and to date £91K community benefit funding has been generated and awarded to projects supporting the local community.
