The Weir

Show your support for Greening Didsbury Greening Didsbury has been shortlisted for energyshare funding, and needs your help to get through to the next round!

The group plans to install an Archimedes’ Screw-type hydroelectric generator of 50kW capacity on the site of the Northenden Mill. The electricity will be fed into the grid via a substation located only 100 metres away.

The generator should be quiet, wildlife-friendly and run for many years with minimal maintenance.

Energyshare is a community renewable energy fund from The River Cottage and British Gas.
