"Please do pass on our thanks to the Trustees for the two grants associated with this project. We feel proud of the outcome and hope that the Summerfield Charitable Trust will feel the same having made such an important, and in the case of the first grant, early contribution to the funding package."
The Cotswold Canals Trust and the Stroud Valleys Canal Company, working together in a joint project, have completed their hydro electric scheme at Dudbridge.
The Summerfield Trust awarded a grant of £45,000 towards the project, which was paid over two years.
The aim of the project is to use spare water flowing down the canal to generate income to help support the future maintenance of the restored canal. In a typical year, the hydro scheme is expected to generate an income of £20,000 through the generation of over 100 Megawatt hours of electricity.
