A remarkable, made in New Brunswick, invention provides Hydro power, and some of the planets, remotest locations, “from a school in Fiji to an OffGrid home in Spain.” For salmon camps, it offers the chance to unhook generators and go green.
The LH1000 is specifically designed machine to operate efficiently in low-head sites. It takes advantage of the same generator as the Stream Engine, however the water turbine component uses a low head propeller design.
This little machine generates DC power from a source such as a stream running down a hillside. Water is channelled into a pipeline with enough drop (head) to build up sufficient pressure.
The 1K Micro Hydro Power System is one of Energy System and Design’s answers to a version of our Stream Engine that can provide reliable power for your needs at an affordable price point.
