Snowdonia Hydro take environmental protection very seriously, we always do our best to ensure that all possible safety measures are followed.

[av_iconlist_item title=’Abstraction and Impoundment Licensing’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue8c4′ font=’entypo-fontello’]

Abstraction and impoundment licenses are the keystone to hydro projects.  Granted by Natural Resources Wales (Wales), the Environment Agency (England) or SEPA (Scotland) the license will legally allow you to abstract an agreed rate of water for the purpose of generating electricity.

To be granted an abstraction license, detailed designs of the intake (weir) and outflow (tailrace) must be submitted with supporting calculations and surveys of the watercourse.

Snowdonia Hydro are experienced in dealing with applications and undertaking all work associated with these licenses.

[av_iconlist_item title=’Fish Easement and Weir Design’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue8ce’ font=’entypo-fontello’]

Upstream and downstream fish passage is now an essential part of weir design. Snowdonia Hydro offer a service to amend existing weirs or design new ones with approved fish and eel easement in line with statutory regulation.

[av_iconlist_item title=’Grid Connection’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue8b4′ font=’entypo-fontello’]

Grid connection processes vary with each DNO.  It is important to establish early on whether a grid connection is possible as this will determine the viability of a project.

[/av_iconlist_item]

[av_iconlist_item title=’Off Grid Power’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue821′ font=’entypo-fontello’]

Some projects have no grid connection available, or choose to go off grid because they want to.

Off grid projects are an exciting way to retain an independent power supply. The choice to go off grid should not be made lightly as it is a lifestyle choice, but for most people who go down this route, it is a very rewarding one.

Talk to us for more information on going off grid.
