Just come back from shooting a project on the island of Eigg in Scotland. The community on Eigg are well on their way to becoming self sufficient and less reliant on fossil fuels and importing energy. Four 6KW wind turbines, solar panels and hydroelectic systems have reduced the reliance on diesel generators and depending on the conditions the island is now powered between 75% and 98% by renewable sources.
Eigg is the first in a series of Renewable Islands I am hoping to visit and document. More images and video soon!
