The proposed Coire Glas hydro scheme would involve the construction of a dam and creation of a new reservoir formed at Loch a' Choire Ghlais. Water would be transferred between the new reservoir and an underground cavern power station via a headrace tunnel.
On 30 October 2012, Highland Council's South Area Planning Committee decided to raise no objection to our Coire Glas proposal. We are awaiting a decision by Scottish Ministers on our application for consent.
Hydro electricity is produced using the power of running water to turn the turbines of generating sets in power stations.

We recognise that our investments in new electricity generation benefit from the co-operation of the local community in a variety of ways, particularly during the construction phase. In recognition of this, our policy is to establish long-term funds to support community projects in areas where we are developing generation projects.
