This system is so important here, micro hydro simply borrows the force of a moving water source and returns all water to the source rapidly, reducing or even eliminating ANY environmental impact. Unlike large hydro systems that use big dams and can do major environmental damage, micro is known to be a high enery producer with little to no environmental impact! South American governments are highly supportive of these systems, because of low expense, low to no damage to the 'media ambiente' and for reducing and even cutting out fossil fuels. This type of system, PAT, pump as turbine, to a three phase generator is possible all over the Andes mountain region, where water is more prolific. In these times of dwindling water supply and poor use of water and fossil fuel resources, we believe teaching environmentally correct and positive solutions and systems is critically important. We start here, one man, one farm, one community, One World. Help us to teach and help others by completing this project and showing the people of South America that an alternative energy solution is not only viable, but normally costs less than hooking to the Grid!
Any funds over the cost of the final installation will be used to wire houses and get circuit breakers and fixtures installed. The initial start up will run ballast loads and a freezer for community needs, but house wiring will have to happen little by little, economically sustainably, unless we surpass (oh happy day) our initial goals! Thanks to one and all, and pass the word! Peace and love, Tina
