Representatives of the projects will receive their awards at 10.00 am on 7th March 2018 at Stockport Hydro at Otterspool. 
The fund of £2,000 has been created through the sale of renewable energy, generated on the River Goyt. Awards will be presented to:

Stockport Hydro is run entirely by volunteers and produces power that is fed directly into the National Grid. This creates an income that maintains the scheme, pays a return to investors and the Environmental Challenge fund.  Over the anticipated 40-year life of the project, the scheme expects to save over 100,000 tonnes of CO2.
