Hydroelectricity For The Home - Set up your system today!Hydroelectric systems have an advantage over other alternative energy systems.
If you own
that has access to a stream or river, and want to produce your own
then Hydro-power should be your first choice. The initial investment is
lower and the kilowatt per dollar return is greater than other
depends on the dynamic head, the amount of water flow and the efficiency
turbine/generator combination. There are several different hydroelectric
turbine/generator designs to optimize the water source available.
generators have an advantage over the conventional AC generating systems
DC power can be stored in a battery bank, the system is collecting power
hours a day to be used as needed. Most commonly the energy stored in
batteries is routed through an inverter to provide 110 volt AC but it
be used directly from the batteries to operate 12 volt lights and
Unlike massive hydroelectric generators requiring huge dams, micro-hydro systems are designed and installed so there is NO impact on the environment!
