Hexham River Hydro Wins National Support !!
We did it!! After a six month campaign in 2011 and a nail biting last few days late in the year we came first competing with more than 600 other communities in the energyshare launch fund vote, securing £100,000 funding and access to professional advice for our community project. Against strong competition from some fantastic projects, Hexham River Hydro took over 30% of the vote nationally.
December 2012 Detailed Design Report
Feedback from our earlier briefings and public meetings in October has shaped the development of Hexham River Hydro and activity over the last two months.
We are encouraged by the wealth and depth of advice we received. Equally we have spent time ensuring that we fully understand issues and concerns raised.
We are grateful to the volunteers who, following our public meeting, have developed inspirational proposals for visitors and local people to learn about hydro power and the wildlife/ecology of the river.
We are now digesting our Consultants detailed design proposals for Hexham River Hydro, made possible by Energyshare funding and are confident that we will be able to move forward based upon the very best advice, locally and nationally.
