At our next meeting in January one of the items we will be discussing is the initial steps we need to take to begin the Community Renewable Energy Project - finding people to help with this stage of information gathering and organising some presentations and discussions with organisations such as CARES, (Local Energy Scotland) Community Energy Scotland and other community groups such as Linlith Go Solar etc so we understand what the process entails and how they managed it. Learn the lessons early from different groups, which will save a lot of time and effort through not making the mistakes other communities have made.
