People in Scotland looking to obtain cheap electricity in an environmentally friendly manner may be able to take advantage of funding that has helped renewable developments in the nation.
The country's government has announced nearly £4 million is to be used to help local communities develop clean energy projects.
These include 32 wind turbine developments, nine hydro power schemes and one anaerobic digestion plant.
Energy minister Fergus Ewing said: "These projects will not only help us meet our ambitious target of generating the equivalent of all Scotland's electricity needs to come from renewables by 2020, but also benefit their local communities."
Of the schemes helped by the funding, 29 are locally-owned and will benefit communities as they will retain all profits from generated electricity.
It was also confirmed yesterday (October 5th) by the cabinet secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Development Alex Neil that an extra £5 million is to be made available to the Energy Assistance Package to help tackle fuel poverty in the country.
