Welcome to the Arrochar Community Hydro Society website.
Arrochar is a community benefit society and owns and operates a 130kW hydro scheme.
The hydro scheme is located in Arrochar, on Luss Estates’ land, in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. With the support of Energy4All the funds required to build the scheme were raised through a community share offer, which was open to local residents and the wider renewable energy community. The build cost of £660K was raised in just two weeks during the Summer of 2017. Thank you to everyone for their tremendous support.
Our scheme was officially opened on 18th May 2018 by Sir Malcolm Colquhoun, Chairman of Luss Estates Company and attended by Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy.
