  • Torrs Hydro, New Mills, Derbyshire, community owned hydro electric scheme. Torrs Hydro is a community share scheme supported by local action group, H2OPE and the Co-op Community Fund. The community group of 230 members invested over £125,000 and then raised the remainder of the scheme’s full cost (£330,000) from community bank loans and grants. The scheme earns an income from the energy exported to the local Co-op supermarket. According to DECC "This is a clear example of the power of local action and the sound investment from hydro projects that can be rolled out across the UK."[2]
