A group of students and two of their professors from the University of Cincinnati enjoyed a visit to Ben Aketil wind farm to learn about wind energy’s role in meeting energy needs in the community and in Scotland more broadly.

They were particularly interested in learning how decisions are made on where wind energy sites are selected and the challenges of energy distribution.

The group were met by Hamish Ellen, Hannah Brown and Erin Hunter.  A director of the Isle of Skye Co-op also joined the visit to discuss the role of the Co-op in the community.
