Small scale hydro electric is a low impact source of clean renewable energy, yet every system has some impact upon the stream and surrounding habitats from which it borrows water.
When designing systems we aim to keep these impacts to a minimum whilst optimising the power generating potential of the site.
We are familiar with all SEPA or Environment agency requirements and criteria and have considerable experience in negotiating with the relevant agencies to ensure their criteria are met.
Again, we think there is room for some creative thinking about the long term management of existing and potential future resources.
Developing local Hydro potentials can be a great starting point for exploring ways in which business, local enterprise and community can better understand and care for their local environment.
