Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon launches UK’s first Difgen turbine with Scottish Water | SayYes2Scotland |

The first turbine of its kind in the UK, capable of generating enough green energy to power up to 150 homes, has been installed in Scottish Water pipes.

Capable of producing 600 MWh of electricity each year, the technology known as Difgen is located in a strategic trunk water main at Denny, near Falkirk, reducing the amount of electricity Scottish Water needs to buy from the National Grid.
