Saddleworth Community Hydro is opening its doors to the public as part of Community Energy Fortnight 2017.
The group designed and launched an innovative turbine at Dovestone Reservoir – the first high head system in England to use an existing dam.
They have been generating renewable electricity for around three years, and recently launched a Fund to help others turn their projects into realities.
Now, locals can get a glimpse inside the turbine house at an Open Day on Saturday, July 1 from 10am to 4pm.
The group said: “By inviting the public to visit, we are giving them a unique chance to see our award-winning project in action.
“We hope our event inspires others to generate and/or save energy for the benefit of their own local communities, themselves, and our environment.
“We are now in a position to use profits to provide grants of up to £500 for local organisations to improve sustainability. If you think you may be interested in applying, do come and have a chat.
“We are also keen to encourage visits from schools, youth groups and other voluntary societies, so why not come to the Open Day to see whether a trip to Saddleworth Community Hydro would be good for your organisation?”
Now in its fourth year, the Community Energy Fortnight showcases some of Britain’s best locally-run projects and special events are being held throughout the country.
