FDT has grown out of the original aspirations of Fintry Renewable Energy Enterprise (FREE). FREE was set up in 2003 with the aim of making Fintry a carbon neutral, sustainable community. With this in mind FREE looked to engage with a local windfarm that was being planned nearby. The result was the Trust has the right to the output of a 2.5 MW turbine that is part of the Earlsburn windfarm. The electricity this turbine produces is sold to the grid and the income this produces is received by the Trust and used for energy saving projects in the village. The Trust has been running since 2007 and has had significant impact on carbon reduction within Fintry. It continues to create projects and develop opportunities to meet its aims and objectives.
