Winznau small-scale hydropower plant

At the end of 2003, 1.2 million Swiss francs were invested to replace the old turbine generator group with a new system. The small hydropower plant now generates approximately 60% more electricity than the old weir turbine. The electricity it generates covers the consumption of around 480 households in the region.
