Micro Hydro Powered Systems
How awesome would it be to make all the naturally clean power you can use? Very Awesome! We have a heck of a hill but no stream. Something to think about if your looking for land. Hydro power is usually running continuously day and night so you don’t need the storage capacity of a similarly sized solar system. Here are 3 Micro Hydro Videos with totally different systems.
This guy in Northern California explains his system well and it’s one of the larger private micro hydro power systems I’ve seen. The generator is putting out about 475 Watts continuous or roughly 10-11 kW per day. The entire system cost about $5,000 to build. The hydro location is about 250 ft from the cabin. With the solar panels, I get about 12.5-13 kW per day in the summer.
