Carluke Local Energy Club
The last 6 months has seen CDT engage with local Carluke businesses to seek their views on the establishment of Carluke Energy Club.
This innovative programme would see that will see local businesses with large roof spaces, join a Carluke Local Energy Club structure and lease these roof spaces to the club, which would seek to secure funding support for the installation of Solar Panels onto these roof spaces.
The businesses would then be able to access cleaner/cheaper energy with any excess either stored and/or transferred to other local businesses in Carluke.
Discussions have been held with a number of large businesses in Carluke, Local Energy Scotland, South of Scotland Electricity and Scottish Power to identify the possible structures, funding support and potential income generation opportunities for Carluke as a Town and community.
