Brendon Energy is applying for permissions for a hydropower scheme on the River Exe, projected to generate 450,000kWh of electricity each year, saving 240 tonnes of CO2 yearly. Financial projections indicate the project will generate a substantial annual Community Fund over the 20 years of the project. The scheme features a ‘fish friendly’ Archimedes screw turbine.

Please come along to Tiverton Town Hall, St Andrew Street, EX16 6PG on Saturday 21st January.
