Millburn is a pico-hydro system installed on the Black Isle by Proterra Energy in 2013. The scheme is built on an old mill burn and so utilises existing infrastructure, minimising environmental impact.
The scheme uses two turbines, but is designed so that one can be removed during summer months when flows are low, and replaced to take advantage of high flows during winter.
