"After decades of decline, the people of the Scottish island of Gigha took things into their own hands, and it has really paid off… Ten new businesses have started in the past five years. Among them Gigha Renewable Energy, which built three wind turbines that generate all the island’s electricity and earn a profit of £100,000 annually which is reinvested in the community-owned island."
