About this event

Ian will look at the history of the Slough Trading Estate, one of Britain’s first  industrial estates to be designed to use electricity as the prime source of energy.  Its history is closely linked to the development of the Estate’s power station, which has evolved to meet the changing demands of industry.  Since inception the Estates electrical distribution has been upgraded from 6.6kV to 11kV and recently to 33kV because of the high energy requirements of Data Centres without interruption of operation.  The Estate also has its own Steam and Potable Water utilities.
