Description

How Kinblethmont Estate cut its energy and lighting costs

Kinblethmont Estate is a farming and shooting estate in the heart of the beautiful rolling Angus countryside towards the east coast of Scotland. It comprises of 3,000 acres of arable farming and woodland with superb views towards the Angus glens to the north and east and the town of Arbroath and the coast to the south.

Over the past few years it has continually cut its energy use, and in the process made big savings on its overheads.

Join us on this unique behind-the-scenes tour to see the many successful improvements that have been made including the installation of:

  • a small wind turbine
  • roof mounted solar arrays
  • two straw batch biomass boilers
  • two woodchip biomass boilers
  • LED Lighting in new offices

Please note the tour will include going round a farm environment and we recommend suitable footwear such as boots or wellies.

Agenda

  • Welcome address
