Micro hydro turbine producer PowerSpout has streamlined their product lines, and we’re keeping an eye on them to see if there’s something new on the horizon. PowerSpout produces rugged micro hydro turbines that can run on small streams and work in arrays of up to 10 units – no dam required.
Even a small stream can generate consistent, clean, dam free, renewable electricity at a price per Watt lower than solar or wind. A single PowerSpout at a site good enough to generate 1kW can produce enough electricity for a typical house for a year (>8,000 kWh/yr). The small (18 inches wide), all-weather PowerSpout PLT is one of the most reliable, cost-effective generators around because we have spent a decade making micro-hydro efficient and affordable.
The PowerSpout PLT EE model costs $1299 (USD) including delivery – Installation is a bit complex, but PowerSpout supplies a good amount of install info. Note that you’ll need to measure the drop from the pipe intake to the Powerspout.
We appreciate the ready availability of PowerSpout spare parts to make repairs easy, the installation manuals, and the large number of dealers spread across the globe. If there’s nothing nearby you and your region, EcoInnovation can serve as your dealer.
