Friday and it was G59 time. Or in non jargon it was the day Scottish Power the network / grid operator witness tested and signed off the Hafod y Porth 100kw (or for accuracy Cathryn) 99.5kw hydro. Few hours later what happened? The heavens opened and we got proper rain and we were making renewable energy. Perfect! Its been a good project. John Millen, Wynne, NT Estate team, TGV Hydro, Hydrolite, GH Jones, Ellergreen Hydro, Datris made this happen. Some polishing left to do but looks like we are under budget and also have some lessons from this hydro to move on to the next one.
Our Pilot projects are now all coming to completion within the Renewable energy Investment program. (Plas Newydd, Croft Castle, and now Hafod y Porth completed) only weeks to go for Stickle Ghyll Hydro and Ikworth Biomass… and then? We evaluate and hopefully move into some serious renewables early next year.
