The PowerSpout: Clean All Weather Renewable Energy
The PowerSpout is the latest micro hydro generator from EcoInnovation New Zealand. It is a custom made Pelton turbine attached to a reconnected Fisher and Paykel Smart Drive generator via a robust bearing assembly, all in a weatherproof casing to create consistent renewable electricity.
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.
