We are Reading Hydro CBS

We financed, built and operate a community hydropower plant with two Archimedes screw turbines next to Caversham Weir in Reading. Income from the renewable electricity is used to run the plant and repay investment. Any surplus will fund sustainability projects that benefit the local community.


Our twin-screw Archimedes turbines will generate 320 Megawatt hours of energy per year
