Green Valleys

I've mentioned Llangattock Green Valleys here before - they do all sorts of environmentally friendly stuff, including the generation of electricity from the streams that are so abundant round here.
On the evening of the 25th March, from 7pm, they're coming to Hay Parish Hall to talk about their latest venture - they're setting up their second renewable energy co-op, with a £690,000 share offer to build four community micro hydro schemes in the Brecon Beacons National Park. They've already raised £192,000, but there's a long way to go.
Last autumn, they launched their first share sale, to build two micro hydro schemes, and raised £270,000 from 100 people, mostly local. Together, all six will generate enough electricity to power around 90 homes.
