Callander Community Hydroelectricty

Fantastic to visit the Hydroelectricity project at Callander, to see the one of the first community-run hydro plants in the UK! Frank Park and Paul Prescott from the trust gave me a tour of the facilities.

The plant turns flow from the Stank Burn into 425kW of renewable energy, which flows onto the national grid.

While the project provides power, It also provides funds to the local trust, who re-invest income back into the community. I'll be supporting more initiatives like this, as a way for people to improve their local areas.
