New hydro project gets go-ahead

A new hydro scheme designed to supply electricity to thousands of homes has been given the go-ahead by the Scottish Government.

RWE npower's project is planned for Black Rock near Evanton in Ross-shire.

Once operational, it should be capable of generating 3.5 Megawatts (MW) of power, enough electricity for more than 2,000 properties.

A hydro electric station is to be built on the lower catchment of the River Glass, between Redburn and Evanton.
