Lochbroom Community Woodland Project
Broompower seeks potential woodland crofters.
The Board of Lochbroom Community Renewables (Broompower) is planning to establish new woodland crofts and asks potential crofters to contact us. Our Woodland Crofter leaflet gives further information about this part of our wider proposals to benefit and grow our community.
What is Broompower
BroomPower community hydro officially began generating electricity on 18th November 2017. The hydro is owned and run by Lochbroom Community Renewables Ltd, a Community Benefit Society, set up by Ullapool Community Trust (UCT) to identify and run renewable energy projects. It is staffed entirely by volunteers.
There are over 450 investors in BroomPower. 54% are from the local area and 46% from the wider UK and beyond, including the Netherlands, France, US and Japan. Many local investors did so on behalf of children and grandchildren highlighting the long-term community and environmental benefit of this community-owned renewables energy scheme.
