Villagers take control of power

A RURAL community has taken charge of its power supply thanks to a £13,390 grant from an energy giant.

The Uig Community Trust secured the generators through a grant from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks’ Community Resilience Fund, which offers support to projects up to a maximum of £20,000.
