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

  • 10 - 50 kW is sufficient to power a lodge / outfitter;
  • 10 kW powers an average North American home;
  • A 100 kW turbine can supply a small village;
  • 20-50 kW is large enough to supply 100-500 inhabitants off-grid settlements (emerging countries).
