POWER is going with the flow in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
The two megawatt £6.1 million Allt Fionn Hydroelectric Scheme has been opened by Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker.
The estimated annual output of the run of river high head scheme will meet the electricity demands of more than 1700 households, more than a quarter of all households in the national park.
The scheme is located at Glenfalloch, near Crianlarich, on land leased from Glenfalloch Estate. It was developed by Osspower Limited in close consultation with the estate, the national park, Scottish Natural Heritage, SEPA and the local community.
