Our Power Ltd is a Community Interest Company wholly owned by Here We Are (HWA) .
HWA is a community charity, at Cairndow at the head of Loch Fyne, Argyll with a centre open since 2001. Our Power has been operating since 2007. And for the last 3 years has been able to contribute income to HWA and thus community benefits. Our plant manager has had a lifetime of working with forestry and timber products and our administrator joined us in 2005. Our timber is sourced from within a local area of 30 miles, from Tilhill contractors. Our yard and chipping shed is just off the A 83 at the head of Loch Fyne. The timber is largely larch and spruce. Our woodchips are P45 and 35 per cent moisture content. We have constructed a new drying floor using a fan blower to dry the chips, further reducing the moisture content if necessary.
Per year we sell about 1,700 tonnes of wood chips or 4,000 megawatts of heat.
Lakeland Smolts, the local salmon hatchery is our largest customer. We sell to them by metered heat to the ESCo “Fish and Chips”. To others, including housing associations and village halls we sell by tonne.
For our different methods of transportation, quantities and delivery, and therefore charges, please see our charges and contact page. Delivery to beyond much more than a 30 radius is not usually a realistic option for us the supplier, for the customer, nor for the carbon footprint.
