Serious Micro Hydro (2010) by Scott Davis
Product Information

Waterpower is the largest source of renewable energy in the world today, and microhydro is a mature, proven technology that can provide clean, inexpensive, renewable energy with little or no impact on the environment.

Serious Microhydro brings you dozens of firsthand stories of energy independence covering a complete range of systems, from household pressure sites to higher pressure installations capable of powering a farm, business or small neighborhood. Topics include:

  • Low, medium, and high head sites
  • AC only systems as well as ones using a battery/inverter subsystem
  • Stand alone power supply or grid intertie set-ups
  • Hybrid systems (combined with photovoltaics or wind).

With all the variables involved in microhydro, there is no "typical" system. These case studies represent the most comprehensive collection of knowledge and experience available on tailoring an installation to meet the needs of a site and its owner/operators. If you are considering building a system, you are bound to find a wealth of creative solutions appropriate to your own circumstances.

Serious Microhydro shows how scores of people are achieving a high standard of living from local energy
