Have been in touch with Nic Wymer today, who is a NT intern from CAT (centre for alternative technology). He has taken on the task of developing a new “off the shelf” micro hydro scheme for the trust to roll out at various sites. There is a budget of £20k and the power output is to be in the region of 4kW. I’ve offered my support to him and look forward to the challenge of helping him come up with a viable system. I should have the cottage reviews sorted by the time this project kicks off.
