The Green Energy Trust

The ScottishPower Green Energy Trust is an independent charity which helps community-based renewable energy projects get off the ground.

Funded entirely by donations from our Green Energy Fund customers, the Trust has awarded almost £1.5 million to more than 128 projects since it was first established.

  • All kinds of projects are considered, from solar panels for sheltered housing to wind turbines for schools.
  • All projects must have a strong community benefit as well as a wider educational element.
  • The trust will award up to 50% of the renewable energy element of the project.
  • The maximum award - for truly exceptional projects – is £25,000, with most successful applications receiving around £10,000.
