Stay warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer AND lower your energy bills by up to 25% or more with Green Energy Barrier! Throughout the winter, heat will rise and typically escape your home through the attic. With Green Energy Barrier installed in the attic, up to 95% of that radiant heat will be reflected back into your home. This helps prevent heat from escaping, minimizing energy loss and reduces costs that would be spent on heating.

Question: What is a residential Microhydro system project?
Answer: A residential micro-hydro system consists of a small turbine in a creek that produces energy that is transferred to the home.
Our S-Tek Building Solutions’ green energy division expert, Jason Smith recently completed Appalachian State University’s Microhydo System Design and Installation Workshop gain further knowledge of the industry. This two day continuing educational activity was held in Boone, NC and was instructed by Don Harris a national microhydro expert. Harris has developed residential hydro systems since 1981 and is responsible for nearly 3,000 successful systems. The Harris system is an efficient, durable battery charging Pelton Wheel designed turbine making it the most popular micro-turbine in the US.
Workshop participants covered the basics of small scale hydro power with a field trip to local microhydro installation. Jason was able to increase his current knowledge about site assessment techniques that will further enhance our current projects. The workshop included:
Measurement of head and flow
Types of turbines and their associated performance and cost
System components such as the intake, penstock and balance of system
Maintenance and troubleshooting
Valuable tips from industry icon, Don Harris.
