Smart Hydro Power Turbine

Smart Hydro Power Turbine

A turbine designed as a horizontal axis “in-stream” turbine for generating power from the kinetic energy of flowing water. This product was developed to be low cost while minimizing negative environmental impacts. Additionally, it is highly adaptable to different stream conditions and use cases both on the grid and off.
