Braemar Community Hydro Ltd

Braemar Community Hydro Ltd (BCH) is a Community Benefit Society which has been formed to fundraise, construct and operate a 100kW community hydro scheme. The hydro scheme will generate clean, low carbon electricity from the Corriemulzie Burn on the outskirts of Braemar. Surplus income from the enterprise will go to a community benefit fund to be used for projects and worthy causes in the local community. Over the forty year lifetime of the project it is envisaged that the scheme will generate £500,000 for this community benefit fund.

The main share offer is now closed as it is now fully subscribed.  The full £800,000 required to construct and operate the hydro scheme has been raised by community shares with nearly 200 Members of the local and wider community who have invested in the project. Construction of the hydro scheme is now complete and the scheme is now generating electricity which is fed into the National Grid.
