Community hydro in Oxford to be commissioned

A community-owned hydro-electric scheme in Oxford will be primarily used to power the Environment Agency offices next door.
The Osney Lock Hydro is expected to go live later this week.

The scheme plans to reward investors by putting profits from the sale of electricity back into future local environmental projects.

Barbara Hammond, who is heading the scheme, said: "The electricity generated does not feed directly into surrounding houses because the grid regulations do not currently allow that."

"Instead, the system connects to the EA buildings at Osney Yard and they will buy the electricity from us that they use; the rest will be exported to the National Grid.
