Low Head Turbine

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 1 kW can produce enough electricity for a typical house for a year (>8,000 kWh/yr). The all-weather PowerSpout LH is one of the most reliable, cost-effective generators around because we have spent a decade making micro-hydro efficient and affordable.

If you have a canal, river, weir or dam overflow where the water falls 1.5 meters vertically then the amount of water will dictate the power potential. This PowerPal Low Head system can deliver 1000 watts continuously from a flow of 130 l/sec. The power is supplied as 220v AC -50hz. The turbines can be arranged in series. The turbine operates on the same principal as the water flowing out of a bath. The vacuum created by the vortex of water flowing vertically through a hole drives a turbine. www.powerpal.com
