North Wales Hydro Power was formed in January 2011 in order to facilitate the desire to own a hydroelectric scheme. What started out as a hobby has now become a passion, which some would describe as an addiction! North Wales Hydro Power are one of the most active developers of hydroelectric schemes in North and Mid Wales, we are working on over 40 schemes at various stages of development. Our activity is focused primarily within the Snowdonia National Park as a result of the high rainfall and the topographical extremes – being a local company we have the benefit of knowing this area very well.
Although we are a young company we benefit from extensive experience gained in previous roles, we also work with a number of experienced and reliable partners in order to deliver our schemes in a timely and professional manner. We supplement our experience with bucket loads of enthusiasm and charisma which is important in hydro as development lead in times are often in excess of 18 months to 2 years.
North Wales Hydro Power are unique as we set out on our journey as a developer seeking to co-invest with landowners in the hydro sector. The vast majority of companies set out as consultants however we have moved to supply development services to supplement our development business as a result of the demand for our support and advice within the sector as a whole.
North Wales Hydro Power are a nationally respected company having given evidence on Hydro Development at the Environment and Sustainability Inquiry and through being a pro-active member of the British Hydro Power Association. We have also been invited to meet with a wide range of ministers and politicians in order to make the development of hydroelectric schemes easier within Wales.

- British Hydro Power Association
