The Green Energy Trust has been funded since 1998 by ScottishPower Green tariff customers who make an annual donation to the Trust.

In response to Regulatory changes, ScottishPower is not currently offering a Green Tariff and therefore the Trust cannot consider any new project applications at this time.

The website will be updated in due course should this situation change.

About the trust

For 17 years the Green Energy Trust has been awarding funds to help community based renewable energy projects get off the ground. 

To date, over £1.7 million has been awarded - helping fund over 150 projects.

Case Study

Hardy swimmers can now enjoy a dip in comfort, thanks to ScottishPower's Green Energy Trust.

New Cumnock is one of the last Scottish communities to boast an outdoor swimming pool.

How to Apply

The Trust can provide up to
50% of the project costs up to a
maximum of £25,000 but most projects receive around £10,000.


The ScottishPower Green Energy Trust supports small scale community based environmental and educational renewable energy projects.  We generally require that projects meet both these criteria.
