Community Energy Fortnight: Stockport Hydro Open Afternoon: Sunday 11th  June 1pm - 4pm

Visit your local Hydroelectric Power scheme, producing renewable energy on the River Goyt for over 10 years.

Greater Manchester’s first community owned hydro electric project is run entirely by volunteers*. Producing power that is fed directly into the National Grid, the Hydro creates an income to maintain the scheme, pay a return to investors and contribute to our ever popular Environmental Challenge fund. Our knowledgeable volunteers will give tours of the site and discuss the complexities and quirks involved in such a venture. We look forward to welcoming you.





Delighted Environmental Challenge winners, collecting their awards in March.

*Volunteers needed to support this unique project.

Do your bit to help combat climate change and keep those turbines turning! No prior experience necessary.

Please note: There are no parking or facilities available on the site.

Parking available at Dobbies Garden Centre, across Dooley Lane or Vale Road Car Park, 5 minutes walk away and the safest place to cross the road.
See https://carparkmaps.co.uk/carparks/view/13143

Access: Most of the venture is visible from the road bridge and through fencing around the site. The site itself is across a gravel forecourt with 2 sets of steps on to the site.
