SSE continued its hydro heritage with the construction of the first large-scale conventional hydro electric station to be built in Scotland for almost 50 years.
Generation at Glendoe has re-started. Around 3GWh (gigawatt hours) of electricity has already been produced and exported to the transmission network.
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.
