Many rivers in France have the power of the water harnessed to provide electric power, and the river Creuse is no exception.
This is the dam built at Eguzon in 1926. At the time of building it was the largest in Europe. It produces 101 million kWh of electric power annually.
But there are others, much smaller along the same river. This is a local electric power mill, but its origins as a mill date from 1238. Working minimally it produces 350,000 kWh annually.
As a result of having these power stations, we can illuminate our river with electric lights. When you enlarge this picture, you can see the local power station looking white, on the far side of the floodlit tree. It looks rather more picturesque at night.
