River Power is able to choose from a range of different products to suit your site. Where possible we will try to maximise the amount of power that can be generated from your site, although this optimisation has to be balanced against both environmental factors and the cost of the installation.

Modern turbines are able to convert over 90% of the energy passing through the turbine into electrical energy, in a clean environmentally friendly way.

Only hydro can produce over 300 times more energy from an installation than the energy needed to build and run the installation, giving the best energy payback ratio of all energy sources.

There are no direct carbon dioxide emissions from hydro projects
