Hear about Ham Hydro project at Teddington drop-in session
Directors of the Ham Hydro project will hold a drop-in evening on the latest development of the Teddington Weir hydro proposal.
Ham Hydro hopes to demolish a section of the weir to install three Archimedean screw turbines that will generate electricity for 600 homes in the area and save about 1,000-tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Power generated from the scheme, which will also include a new fish pass and sluice gate, will be sold to the national grid with profits going towards more low carbon projects in the community.
The scheme has been supported by MP’s Vince Cable and Zac Goldsmith but has also raised fears from neighbours that it could ruin a scenic conservation area and cause noise misery.
The drop-in evening will offer people the chance to ask questions, while the team will share how the scheme will be delivered and how it will look and feel.
The meeting will be held at Sacred Heart Church, 262 Kingston Road, Teddington on December 11 from 6pm to 9pm.
Everyone is welcome, but please RSVP to email@example.com.
