A spokesperson for Scottish Enterprise said: "At the point of responding to this Freedom of Information request, we agreed to withhold the company name as it was at a critical point in securing additional finance from other sources. Time has moved on and we can now confirm that Silva Renewables Ltd was the recipient of £475,000 over a three year period to support its growth ambitions. This comprised funding of £80,000 and a repayable grant of £395,000 which will be fully repaid.”
