A survey has been carried out of the various water courses and tributaries terminating in the river Severn. In the Telford area two or possibly three sites where found to be suitable for a micro hydro installation. We are proposing to develop at least one of these sites by installing a hydro power plant ‘(s).
The sites for the scheme are in the Coalbrookdale area, using the same water course used for the furnaces and forges during the industrial revolution. Various stakeholders will be involved with this project as it moves though the feasibility stage and hopefully onto the actual installation that will provide power for the local community.

We currently run a garden share scheme. Where garden owners with unmanageable gardens, can allow part of it to be handed over to a keen gardener. So both may benefit from the proceeds. It may be the owner is no longer fit enough, or to busy to make us of their space and the budding gardener has a small or no garden and cannot find an allotment in their area.
