Our Mission

We started out to save a historic run-of-river hydropower plant that was once the only source of electric power for Woodstock, Virginia. Our mission then turned to modernizing the hydropower plant to produce green energy with state of the art technology matched with the century old turbines.  As we push forward, we want to help others use the same technology we use.

Our Goal

We are offsetting our carbon footprint while saving a local historic site.  Burnshire was the first power plant in Shenandoah County and our neighbors should know where their modern power grid was born.  We have been successful deploying cutting edge technologies in a "mature" industry and hope to share our experiences with others.
