Also see . . . Attempts to generate hydroelectricity at Brunel Locks continue. A plan to generate hydroelectricity at the Brunel Locks is not dead in the water. The building would not be much bigger than the current operator’s cabin that sits on the property. In terms of project size, preliminary numbers would put the hydrogeneration at about 1.6 million kilowatt hours per year, which can power on average approximately 136 houses.
