Description: The Fletchers Horse World had an old mill building and dam on the property that was last used to produce DC electric power a long time ago. The turbine was in the local museum building and although the building needed some repair John Fletcher was interested in restoring the site to generate electricity to offset his fairly large electric bill on his horse farm/event centre. John also wanted to improve the appearance of the site because the bridge crossing over the dam and beside the old mill building was also his personal residence driveway. Restoring the site but keeping the historical aspects and bringing these historical aspects back in operation was the project’s goal. This project is owned by the Fletchers.
