Diy micro hydro power

  micro hydro power in a stream

Microhydropower.com has some exciting new products that allow the common guy to harness the power of a small stream for the purpose of generating electricity.

Their setup will cost you about 3 thousand bucks...and then you'll need to figure out how to store it and get it where you need it.

Not a bad solution for home made electricity if you live close enough to a steady stream of water.
