Funding of Projects

Landowners and community groups will maximise the value of a hydropower scheme by funding it directly.  In exchange for assuming all the costs and risks for feasibility studies, planning, design, licensing and construction, all the benefits are retained for the life of the scheme - at least 20 years for Feed-in Tariffs with a design life in excess of 50 years.      

Grant funding and loans are available for community groups and rural businesses.  babyHydro can direct you to advisors on suitable sources of finance as well as land lease arrangements to suit your requirements.
