We’ve seen steady generation throughout January, with the total generation hitting 57,000kWh by the end of the month.
River conditions have seen the river on ‘red’ with the increased water in the river system, resulting in a decreased drop of head height at the hydro. The effect of the high flow has sadly been all too apparent just upstream at the Botley Road bridge, where two boats slipped their moorings yesterday. You can read more about the incident here.
The hydro was temporarily stopped while the Environment Agency temporarily lowered the levels of the river on the Osney stretch in response to the incident.
