Energy Local Totnes Hydro Launch

A fun afternoon event where individuals and families can come to learn about Totnes’s biggest renewable energy project, the Totnes Hydro and how they can now save money by buying electricity directly from the hydro via the Energy Local Totnes Club.

There will be:

  • Children’s activities focussed on learning about renewable energy with SeaDream (these will begin every half hour from 2pm).
  • Tours of the Hydroelectric station (at 2pm, 2:45pm, 3:30pm & 4:15pm).
  • Information about the Energy Local Totnes Club – a co-operative that enables people to buy & sell locally generated renewable energy at a fair price.
  • Energy Saving advice & information.
  • A food & drink stall.

Please book your hydrolectric tour or children’s activity slot in advance, if you are able to (it’s really helpful for our planning) at:

The Totnes Weir Hydro power plant was constructed in 2015 & & has a 300kWh capacity. It has two Archimedes Screw turbines that generate clean, renewable electricity – which is around 1,250 MWh of clean electricity each year.
