Hydroelectric power station Sint-Michielsgestel
From De Ruwenberg, you can walk upstream along the Dommel and visit the hydroelectric power station. The difference in height in the Dommel is compensated by three passage openings. The total height difference is 1.80m and annually about 250 billion litres of water fall through the power station. The turbine that generates the green power is an extension of the second passage and it produces about 650,000 kWh per year.
