In 2008 the co-operative purchased a stake in the Kilbraur wind farm via a share offer in excess of £1 million. A second share offer in 2011 saw the purchase of a further stake in the remaining 8 turbines at the wind farm. The site consists of 27 turbines. www.kilbraur.coop
The Isle of Skye Renewables Co-op purchased a stake in the Ben Aketil wind farm following an initial share offer in 2008, quickly followed by a second offer in 2010. The twelve turbines on site generate enough clean, green energy to supply around 21,000 homes. www.skye.coop
Following a successful share offer in 2015, High Winds raised £4million towards the cost of constructing two wind turbines at Harlock Hill, near Ulverston, Cumbria.
Recently another share offer has raised £5.7 million which will see High Winds become the sole owner of Mean Moor Wind Farm, Ulverston. www.highwinds.coop
