The Benefits

The Company’s commitment to the environment is integral to its strategy. As more and more people become concerned about hydropower's contribution to global warming and other environmental issues arising from the construction of huge dams and the flooding of vast swathes of land, there is increased interest in run-of-the-river hydro-electricity generation as installation of such systems has very little environmental impact.
