Off Grid Hydro Scheme Scotland Renewable

A West Coast Estate

Proterra Energy was employed to determine a practical energy solution for a remote off grid Estate on the west coast.

 

A low head hydro scheme was identified as the best option for meeting all the power requirements of the Estate in a manner that would ensure the sustainabilty of all the Estate's activities.

The result was a 36kW hydro scheme, coupled with an intelligent power hub including an 80kWhr battery bank.

The system powers a lodge, 8 other properties and a walkers bothy.

"Proterra was involved in our project right from the start.  It was a challenging and ambitious project with energy generation, storage and distribution.  To have an adaptable and solutions oriented company like Proterra involved was superb.  They are professional and trustworthy and I would recommend them to anyone with an off grid energy project."
