Serious Microhydro brings together dozens of firsthand stories of energy independence
from the pages of Home Power magazine. These accounts cover a complete range of
systems, from household pressure sites to higher pressure installations capable of
powering a farm, business or small neighborhood. Topics include:

  • Low head and medium head sites
  • AC only systems as well as ones using a battery/inverter subsystem
  • Stand alone power supply or grid intertie set-ups 
  • Hybrid systems (combined with photovoltaics or wind).

The case studies here represent the most comprehensive collection of knowledge and
experience available on tailoring an individual installation to meet the needs of a site and its owner/operators. Serious Microhydro provides a wealth of creative solutions and is an essential resource for homeowners, teachers, renewable energy professionals, activists and decision makers who want to understand the technology from a “hands on” perspective.
