Current Conversion

This stretch of the river at Buonvoneader, on North Harris, once powered a generator at the long-closed whaling-station. The waters continued to flow and now the North Harris Trust looks forward to constructing a micro-hydro plant to supply local needs and feed into the national grid. Across the Minch provides an interesting video of the ways in which old forces can new create new energies.
