Micro hydropower plant

Equipment / BOM

  • Water intake usually combined with a partial diversion work of the river flow;
  • Penstocks (not needed if water fall is within reach);
  • Power regulator;
  • Connecting line;
  • Ventilated container-box for easy-access maintenance:
  • Closing gate;
  • Turbine & Generator.

Power capacity / sizing

  • A 50 kW turbine can supply a small town of up to 100 kW if management of energy uses selective pre-programmed power cuts.
  • 10 kW powers an average North American home
  • 10 - 50 kW is sufficient to power a lodge / outfitter
  • 20-50 kW is large enough to supply 100-500 inhabitant off-grid settlements depending on climate (emerging countries).
