30,000kWh and counting

We are delighted to report that generation continues to be going on apace with power production reaching 30,000kWh at the weekend.

Daily generation fluctuates as river flows vary.  We have also experienced that the build up of debris on the trash screen can reduce flow and therefore power output.  Many thanks to our team of volunteers who are making daily trips to the site to keep the trash screen clear.  As well as leaves and twigs, their haul has also included a bucket and several plastic bags.

When we are operating at full throttle, we are topping 1000 kWh in a day – enough to make 50,000 cups of tea.
