The first thing we need is a legal body to own and run this project. 

But what sort...?

There are several legal options, and there is no quick way to understand them, and decide which one is right for us. However other community energy projects have gone through the same process and there is advice available. 

For Abingdon Hydro we chose an Industrial and Provident Society (Benefit of the Community). There is more detail in the pages below this one. 

A new page has been added for the 2015 Annual General Meeting.
