There are several valuable outcomes:

  • It demonstrates that a group of local people can actually do something to slow down climate change! We are NOT powerless or helpless!

  • We now know how to set up such a project and are happy to share what we have learned and so enable others to replicate our success.

  • We will be generating reliable zero carbon electricity in a quiet, non-intrusive way for many years.

The hydro turbine is owned and run by Saddleworth Community Hydro Ltd,a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, It is made up from local and national members with a passion for the environment.
