Hydro Power at Home

video Hydro Power at Home
An easy demonstration of a small turbine with a paddled wheel and a DC motor as a dynamo in order to generate electricity with falling water power or with tap water pressure power.
Nice demo, a co-worker built a paddle wheel for a small creek in his backyard. It was driving a serpentine belt turning 28 car alternators, every month he gets a small check back from the local power company as it produces excess electricity year round.
