The generated electricity is primarily used by RENERTEC to feed its office facilities. The surplus is fed into the public grid owned by the local utility.

The power plant was planned and built by RENERTEC founder, who now also operates it. Experience gained here provides the basis for hisplanning and supervision activities of subsequent European projects for small hydro- generating plants in the powerrange up to 1 Megawatt.

The know-how gained was furthermore the proven basis for numerous subsequent plannings and multiple tasks in connection with German and European small hydro generating plants by the founder of RENERTEC and his involvement in German and European hydro power policy.
