My cousin was founder of the Micro Hydro Association (of which I am a supporting member). Having seen the the hydro-electric system he self-built on his burn in Scotland, I became very interested in forms of power generation alternative to fossil fuels. In my opinion photo-voltaic systems are probably the most effective and efficient. As a local resident, therefore, I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to make a contribution to the future development of Wiltshire Wildlife Community Energy.
