John Michael Greer on MicroHydro: for those of my readers who don’t speak appropriate tech fluently, this means a Hydro Electric system meant to generate power from very modest amounts of running water. Less popular than wind and solar, mostly because sun and wind are more widely distributed than streams, micro-hydro has nonetheless had a presence in the Alternative Energy scene since the Seventies. What sets the Eco Innovation systems apart from others, though, is that the generators used in them are salvaged washing machine motors.
