The competition to design a logo for the new Eneco UK and Co-operative Energy tariff – Highlands & Mearns Wind –  has been won by a five year Highlands school girl.

Budding young artists in the Lochluichart area were encouraged to enter their designs through their primary school and the winning design was submitted by Siobhan Grant from Strathgarve Primary School.

Siobhan’s logo was chosen by representatives from Eneco and Co-operative Energy as it clearly represents the importance of wind power in the local community and the impact that it will have. Her logo design will now be used as the official logo.

Teacher Emma Louise Stevenson from Strathgarve Primary School was delighted with the interest shown by the children.

She said: “The children really enjoyed this project as it challenged not only their artistic skills but also allowed them to learn about renewable energy. The standards were high so I am sure the judges found it hard to choose. However Siobhan’s design stood out.”

The Highland & Mearns tariff, a partnership between Eneco UK and Co-operative Energy, offers households surrounding Tullo, Lochluichart and Moy wind farms access to 100% renewable electricity supplied by the wind farms.

Zoisa Walton, Managing Director, Eneco UK, said: “Having worked so closely with the community for a number of years on the development of the wind farms and the new tariff with Co-operative Energy, it was a natural step to approach the local school when it came to designing our new logo.

“We think Siobhan’s design is lovely and it looks great on all our marketing material.”

Eneco operates a portfolio of five wind farms in Scotland amounting to over 200 MW of capacity, supported from its local office in Dochfour, near Inverness.
