Island wind farm gets funding

The North Harris Trust wind farm project on the Western Isles has received £900,000 worth of funding from the Big Lottery Fund.

Three turbines will be built and it is hoped they will generate an annual income of £150,000 through the sale of electricity.

The cash raised will be put towards other projects in the community and be used to help create jobs.
