Gisla Power Station

A small hydro-electric power scheme on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, the Gisla power station is located in the hamlet of Gisla on Little Loch Roag, 19 miles (30 km) west southwest of Stornoway. It has a generation capacity of 1 megawatt making use of a gross head of water of 47m (154 feet) from Loch Coirgavat to produce an average of 2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. Originally built to supply electricity to the isolated island community, the scheme is now an integral part of the national electricity supply network.
