Hidroelectric Power Plant

Muíño Novo de Prieto, tamén coñecido como “Fábrica da luz” (Manuel Lara, 2017)

On an existing mill on the river Eume upstream of the town of As Pontes de García Rodríguez it was built between 1906 and 1908 a new mill, “Prieto’s New Mill”, equipped with a hydraulic turbine for the production of electricity. During the daytime, the electricity generated was consumed in the electric cereal mill that “Prieto y Compañía” owned in the town, at one kilometre of distance. At nigh time, the production of the “light factory” was provided for street lighting in As Pontes’ village.
