The Reading University Great Debate this year was on the subject of can we meet our demand from renewable resources.
We are delighted to report that the Environment Agency has just granted the water abstraction and impoundment licences for the hydro.
There is some good news, as we had hoped, the pre accreditation of Feed in Tariffs have been reintroduced as a part of the consultation process. This is good news and will mean that we will know how much income we will get for generating hydro electricity and be able to work out our finances.
Without this it would have been impossible to proceed without substantial alternative funding. Now there is at least a chance.
