‘We’re powering the whole of Great Elm!’

Before moving to the stables, Raj and his family lived in an old listed property a stone’s throw from their new eco pad. Whilst Raj was limited in what he could do in that house, he decided to install a micro-hydro system in a neighbouring old mill site. Hapsford hydro now generates enough to power 120 homes; with 2500 litres passing through the system every second! Darren Brown installed and co-owns the system and lives in the converted mill.

WHAT YOU WILL SEE

An amazing micro-hydro system
