In 1909 Grassington was provided with its first electricity supply from a hydroelectric plant at Linton Falls, which continued to operate until 1948 when the National Grid arrived in the area. However, in March 2012 a new hydroelectric power plant was opened using the same but restored turbine house, which provides 500,000 kWh (0.5MW) of electricity a year, using two Archimedean screws from the flow of the River Wharfe.
