Minimalist Backup Systems
We sell, service, and maintain small- and large-generator backup systems for both homes and businesses (up to 100,000 watts). We also provide you with an environmentally friendly way of saving water.
With the micro-hydro solutions system, water from stream, rivers, and lakes is utilized to generate electricity. You are provided with the power you need, while remaining eco-friendly and saving energy.
Hydro-Power is a fueled by water, so it doesn’t pollute the air like power plants that burn fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas.
Hydro-Power relies on the water cycle, which is driven by the sun, thus it’s a renewable power source.
Hydro-Power is a domestic source of energy, produced in the United States.
Hydro-Power is generally available as needed; engineers can control the flow of water through the turbines to produce electricity on demand.
How it works
Hydro-Power use the energy in water streams to produce electricity or mechanical energy.
Although there are several ways to harness the moving water to produce energy, run-of-the-river systems are often used for micro-hydro systems.
For run-of-the-river micro-hydro systems, a portion of a river’s water is diverted to a water conveyance that delivers it to a turbine or waterwheel. The moving water rotates the wheel or turbine, which spins a shaft.
The motion of the shaft can be used for mechanical processes, such as pumping water, or it can be used to power an alternator or generator to generate electricity.
