Why built a large windfarm in Shetland ?
There are plenty of excellent reasons why Shetland is just the place for a large windfarm.
Use the links on the left to see why the Viking Energy project makes sense - and why it could be of such great benefit to the islands.
There is the contribution it will make to Scotland's carbon emission targets and the islands will get their power from a sustainable and renewable source.
There is also the income to the Charitable Trust, crofters, landowners and local communities, as well as the benefit of new jobs and the fact it will open the way for other commercial renewable energy projects - hopefully also with substantial community ownership
