The hydroelectric turbine on the River Esk at Ruswarp started generating and exporting energy in December 2012. The turbine will produce on average 160,000 kWh of green electricity every year enough for 45 houses and saving approximately 1,400 tonnes of carbon in the first 20 years.
 
At this event you’ll get to hear from both The Co-operative and Whitby Esk Energy before going on a tour of the turbine site. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and meet the volunteers involved in the project.
 
Refreshments will be available. 
 
All are welcome to join us at the local pub after the event from 5pm!
 
The path down to the turbine site is fairly rough so appropriate footwear is recommended. Please note that the site visit is weather dependent.
