Hydro power workshop

14th Dec 2010 @ 18:00

Learn about how to make use of the power of local rivers at this free workshop.

With new subsidies and incentives for green power, hydro power is an obvious choice in a hilly, rainy area like the Peak District.

We want to encourage as many people as possible to think about how they can generate hydro electric power and make profits that can be fed back into rural communities, and hopefully see more and more hydro power sites developed in the Peak District. Come along and find out how to assess whether you can make green energy from your local river.

Guest speakers:

  • Maggie Coles, a director of Torrs Hydro in New Mills - the UK's first community hydro scheme

The workshop includes free buffet dinner.  It is funded by the Open Gate charitable trust, and is a follow up to our Peak Power report

Location: Hayfield Village Hall, Walk Mill Road, Hayfield, SK22 2ER
