Micro Hydro-Power

A micro hydro power is a type of hydro electric power scheme that produces up to 100 KW of electricity using a flowing steam or a water flow. The electricity from such systems is used to power up isolated homes or communities and is sometimes connected to the public grid.

This system is generally used in developing countries to provide electricity to isolated communities or rural villages where electricity grid is not available. The micro hydro scheme design can be approached as per household basis or at the village level often involving local materials and labor.
