Some time ago the National Trust investigated the possibility of using all that water that comes down from the hills and waits in the reservoir to produce energy. The feasibility study suggested it was too costly, but since then things have changed, and the costs have come down to the point where there is a distinct possibility of a hydro scheme using reliable tested technology and modern piping could bring a return on investment of up to 8%. The National Trust could do it themselves, but they would like to involve their community in benefiting from this opportunity. They will launch the idea at a meeting at the National Trust chalet in Carding Mill Valley on Monday 12 November 2012 following the Stretton Climate Care AGM at 7.00pm. Come along and explore (at absolutely no obligation whatever) the exciting possibilities of community funded community energy that gives something back for once!
