Sleat Renewables Ltd (SRL)
SRL is a subsidiary company of Sleat Community Trust. It deals with the renewable energy activities of the Trust and mananges a wide variety of projects.
The Clean Sleat Project
In 2009 SRL were awarded £99,000 by the Climate Challenge Fund to reduce the Carbon Footprint of the peninsula by around 6% over two years.
Particular projects included:-
Rotovator - to encourage more vegetable growing
Garden Shredder - for garden mulch and compost
General Purpose - 750 kgs trailer
in 2009 Sabhal Mòr Ostaig installed a woodchip boiler in its carpark, to supply the buildings with hot water and heating - this accounts for the delicious smell of wood smoke in the area! SRL supplies woodchip to SMO, and other customers, from logs harvested in our own community forest at Tormore. SRL also supplies split logs for firewood to households throughout Sleat.
Sleat Bike Week
The annual bike week is a great success, encouraging more adults and children to cycle safely in Sleat.
