Reading Hydro is an exciting volunteer-led Community Benefit Society, that aims to ‘Harness the power of the Thames for the Community’ via building a hydro-electric scheme at Caversham Weir.
This will be an exciting and working example of community owned, renewable energy generation right in central Reading, enabling community shares and membership of the scheme.
Alongside this, profit made, will go to a community funding pot and in the long-term will become a community owned asset.
Some of our priorities are:
Being an example of a sustainable organisation
Supporting our local community and the environment
Building learning experiences around renewable energy
We have a board of 6 voluntary Directors with different skills and are open to members who help shape our direction as well as volunteer.
We’ve come along way, but have a lot more to do! So why not join us?
