There's an interesting article in the BBC News about the Isle of Eigg (in Scotland's Inner Hebrides) now being almost entirely self-sufficient from renewable sources for all its electrical power:  http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20180320-extraordinary-electricity-on-a-remote-scottish-island   and the accompanying article:  http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20170329-the-extraordinary-electricity-of-the-scottish-island-of-eigg   Yeah!

And here's another article that gives a good impression of life on Eigg:  https://mashable.com/2017/04/22/eigg-scotland-living-off-the-grid/#gH.yaBXoMkqn
