Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Hydroelectricity is the world's largest and cleanest source of renewable energy. But despite lively interest in renewables generally, there is an information vacuum about the smallest version of the technology dubbed "the simplest, most reliable and least expensive way to generate power off grid."

Highly illustrated and practical, Microhydro is the first complete book on the topic in a decade. Covering both AC and DC systems, it covers principles, design and site considerations, equipment options, and legal, environmental, and economic factors.

Review:

"At long last, a book about small, residential-scale hydroelectric. Our industry has been looking for this book for over ten years!" Doug Pratt, Technical Editor, Real Goods

Synopsis:

All you need to get clean home energy from water to wire.
