How easy is it to set up Micro-Hydro
« on: August 25, 2014, 11:14:03 AM »
Being in the fortunate position of living out in the countryside with a stream running past the end of my garden, I've been considering setting up a Micro-Hydro system to generate my own power.

I have no idea where to start with this though, anyone out there able to offer advise or opinions on if this is something that is feasible?

this is a very old post but for the benefit of others reading ;

scroll down halfway and enter flow rate and head , that will give you potential power.

size and length of hose is critical as efficiency falls quickly with small pipe sizes.
