Get involved

Get Involved with Reading Hydro!

There are lots of ways to get involved and we’re an extremely open and friendly group!
You can:

  • Join as a member or stand as a Director of the Society
  • Invest in one of our Share Offers and support our project becoming a reality
  • Share knowledge and experience – we have four broad working groups: publicity, technical, finance and project management that the directors coordinate and members are encouraged to participate with. There’s no requirement to have any specialist knowledge in these areas to get involved, so don’t be shy!
  • Help raise awareness of Reading Hydro by attending our events and spreading the word about sustainable energy from the Thames

We would like to invite you to our Open Information Sessions. This is a chance for you to meet our Directors and to ask any questions you have on Reading Hydro, the Share Offer and the hydro-power scheme that we want to build on the river Thames, by Caversham Weir.
