Caption: The telegraph pole where the electricity is fed into the grid from a small scale hydro electric station at Kilnstones in Longsleddale, Lake District, UK. The system incorporates a refurbished 76 year old pelton turbine. It can generate 25 Kw of electricity and with the feed in tariff for renewable energy generation should make the owner around 25,000 per year. It has a head of 100 metres. There is huge potential for small scalehydro projects in the Lake District, and other upland areas of the UK.
