pipes in high-rise buildings, industrial processes including--
paper, textile, or pharmaceutical manufacturing
& Emergency readiness, disaster preparedness--with rapid, managed response to provide electricity by accessing flowing water.
SIMPLICITY of DESIGN, EASE of INSTALLATION--add to Current Structures:
--incorporate at untapped assets such as locks in canals, dam tailraces, non-electrified dams, under pontoons in rivers, at bridge piers. --in northeast U.S. alone, up to 10,000 megawatts of new hydro capacity to develop (10 million kW). --as carbon-neutral, non-polluting, alternative energy from gravity & flowing water.
--NOT building new dams or burning carbon-based fuels.
--Help protect health, the environment, and ameliorate climate change.
--At an approximate peak capacity of 2 kW each, one 6" HydroCoil turbine would = potential 17,520 kWh /year used by consumer. Save up to $2600 /yr. if local = 15 cents /kWh.
--Peak output potential is unmatched in its weight & size category, up to 50 times better than any single turbine in its class. --Quiet
