Micro Hydro Systems

Of all the small renewable energy systems around, a small hydro system – where it’s feasible – may be the most cost-effective and reliable. If you have running water on or near your property, you may want to consider investing in a micro-energy system.

A micro-hydro system can mean energy around the clock and year-round, if you have a steady stream of water. All that is required is a fall of several feet high, and a micro-hydro system, consisting of:

  • piping
  • a turbine generator system
  • integration with regular power systems (where possible)

As with other renewable energy systems, micro-hydro systems can be free-standing, hybrid or grid-integrated.

A micro-hydro system very simply takes the energy available from a falling stream of water and converts it into usable electricity.
