The Power of Water

CUMHACHD AN UISGE The most expensive Energy system here at GlenWyvis is our Hydro scheme. After extensive research which included visiting Scotland's first hydro on the island of Rum the farm hydro was commissioned in December 2010.

The most expensive energy system here at GlenWyvis is our Hydro scheme. After extensive research, which included visiting Scotland's first hydro on the island of Rum, the farm hydro was commissioned in December 2010. As you can see the Rum hydro is very similar & still running successfully. We hope ours will last well beyond the 70 years Rum has already managed!

Excess water from the hydro as well as water from our borehole will be used in the distillation processSome of the energy currently exported will be used as part of our green credentials-you can see the red light flashing which is exporting from hydro, wind & solar production today

Excess water from the hydro as well as water from our borehole will be used in the distillation process. Some of the energy currently exported will be used as part of our green credentials. Watch the video above to see the red light flashing: this is exporting energy from hydro, wind and solar production today.

GlenWyvis updates

We were out and about in early February, resupplying our outlets ready for Valentines Day! As part of his flying with PDG Helicopters Dalcross, he found himself out on North Ronaldsway after storm Gertrude & Henry left their marks; you may have seen the island on Countryfile last weekend. A chance meeting at the lighthouse revealed that the energy generation scheme of The North Ronaldsay Trust shares a lot of similarities to the GlenWyvis scheme.

Fetlar Wind Limited

A lot further north in Shetland is the Fetlar Co-op wind development, which John is a shareholder in. Like the Dingwall wind co-op it is a great project and it is good to see renewable energy doing so well in Scotland.
