Boyndie Co-op was established in 2005 for the purpose of owning a share in the Boyndie wind farm located at Boyndie Airfield in Banffshire.
Boyndie Co-op is the first wind farm co-operative in Scotland and has given local people, as a matter of priority, and others, an opportunity to invest in the production of renewable energy.
Boyndie Wind Farm Co-operative Ltd is an Industrial & Provident Society based on the highly successful wind farm run in Cumbria by Baywind Energy Co-operative Ltd.
The share issue was managed by Energy4All Ltd, established by Baywind to provide support to co-operative wind farm projects around the UK.
Boyndie has been established to provide an opportunity for all who are concerned with the effects of climate change to become involved in the ownership and operation of a wind farm. It is especially, but not exclusively, aimed at groups and individuals local to the wind farm.
