You’ve heard the saying, location, location, location – and for a microhydro power system location is the key to success! Microhydro is the best form of local power production, but is extremely site specific. The location has to have sufficient flow and drop to make the generator worthwhile. A microhydro power system has a tremendous advantage over solar electricity and wind turbines, since it runs 24 hours per day (solar and wind are intermittent sources).
Our renewable energy division, S-Tek Greenline considers every aspect of site, location and water flow to determine if a microhydro installation project would be beneficial. Our current hydro project has all the key elements to provide sufficient power for our client and we’re happy to share a few photos here. We’ll post updates as the project moves forward and are excited to gear up toward installing the generator house.
As you can see from the photos, it truly was all hands on deck (young and old) to run the wire down the very long hill to the generator house location. Without question, we at S-Tek have the best crew of professionals around!
