December 2017

It has been a long time since I edited the blog! Life in the hydro world has been as busy as ever. This year we have seen record generation, despite the very dry period in April and May 2017, from our two operating projects at Inverliever and Allt Mor. Both schemes are working well and we are looking at upgrade options.

We finished the small storage project at Glenuig in the early part of the year. The benefits of storage are clear with the turbine having operated continuously since the end of May.

We are continuing to work on our next project which is a 140kW high head scheme.

Other than that I have been very busy with the successful campaign to bring reasonable rateable values to small scale hydro project in Scotland and with engagement with SEPA and the Scottish Government to ensure a long term future for hydro.
