Green Energy in Caversham

Our very own local hydropower station is planned for Caversham. It will be built alongside the weir at Caversham Lock by Reading Hydro, a Community Benefit Society. They have all the necessary permissions in place. It will generate enough renewable electricity for 90 average homes for decades to come. Income from selling electricity will run the scheme and pay a return to investors. They aim to raise £700,000 by February 14, to build the scheme later in 2020. Breaking news – as of 1 February they had reached their target! For details of their share offer, see
