The picture shows Cromford Mill, birthplace of the modern factory system and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A feasibility study to examine the reinstatement of a waterwheel at the site (first installed in 1776!) has just been successfully completed with the support of the Rural Community Energy Fund. The study has identified that a modern Kaplan turbine would exploit the full potential of the site and provide up to 20kW of hydroelectric power. A representative from Cromford Mill will speak on 1 December at the Community Power webinar.
