Sleat Hydro Community Benefit Society was formed in 2020 to utilise the renewable resources of Tormore Forest in producing green electricity. The Scheme was funded via a community share offer which raised £235,000. All profits after paying Dividends to the shareholders are passed directly to the Trust for community benefit.
Following a successful build, the hydro scheme was commissioned on 16 August 2021, and has been generating continuously since then.
