Second community-owned hydro on the Thames commissioned

Huge congratulations to the Low Carbon Hub for successfully commissioning the second community-owned hydro on the Thames.  Sited just a few miles down stream from Osney, the 440 MWp scheme comprises of three archimedean screws, and will generate 1.6 GWh clean green electricity every year.

Like Osney, the project also incorporates a fish pass, which will allow all species of fish in the river to migrate upstream from the Lasher Weir for the first time in nearly 400 years. The pass has both concrete and naturalised sections and will be the first of its type in England.
