Open afternoon – 7th September 2013

We held an open afternoon on Saturday 7th September as part of Community Energy Fortnight.  Over 50 people attended the event which involved a presentation about the construction of the turbine and a tour of the site.  During the tour people could look under the covers to watch the Archimedes screw turning and visit the control kiosk to see the display showing the electricity being generated at the time.

The event was sponsored by The Co-operative who also gave a short presentation explaining that they are promoting community energy as it not only helps the UK to meet its energy and climate change goals but also benefits the local community and raises awareness of energy and environmental issues.
