Our power was cut off for a few hours yesterday while the Hydro system was connected to the grid. All seemed to go well and we were back online by 1pm. I haven’t heard anything to indicate that everything didn’t go according to plan.
I also heard that an informal noise test was carried out last week, with a compressor fired up inside the pump house and the sound level measured from outside. Apparently this was satisfactory, so we will be interested to hear how it works out with the turbine actually running. As this was the one single item of most concern to residents, I am expecting (hoping) that we will be informed when the official noise test is happening.
