Why we only provide the best technology

Power21 offers a range of solutions for those seeking to install new, or maintain existing, small-scale hydropower generators in the British Isles. We only recommend using the highest quality proven technology that generates the greatest and most reliable return on investment over the medium to long term. Although cheaper alternatives are available, these will often result in a false economy, as higher maintenance and replacement costs, with less efficient power returns, can make these economically unsustainable.

Do small-scale hydropower installations impair the riverine environment?

Much speculation has been circulating to suggest that hydropower installations on waterways are damaging to river health and wildlife.
