BARR HYDRO

After more than five years in the planning and construction two directors of MCDC and our energy subsidiary MorVolts watched anxiously as 16 experts inspected and commissioned our Barr Hydro Scheme on 16th July 2021.

We now generate electricity and sell it to the national grid.  We have significant loans to pay off (over £6m) but when we start generating profits, these will be retained in the community. Under the charity law that regulates MCDC the Directors must ensure they are meeting the charitable objectives of the company and this obligation includes the allocation of any future hydro profits.

Let it now RAIN!

For reports on the project since the start of construction and for more information see below.
