Hydro Power from PF Dam
This project is currently inactive.
We are checking the feasibility of creating electricity or power for milling flour at the Prairie Farm dam.
The project might be in conjunction with the school and generate power for the school which could reduce taxes.
We will check out if there are grants or other funding for this?
If the school can be involved it could present an educational experience for the students.
Kate mentioned the possibility of generating electricity from the dam using the hydrodynamic screw.
