We hope you have found this Guide to
Hydro Power helpful. We admit we’ve only scratched the
surface of this substantial topic, but we’re happy to discuss
your hydro project in detail when appropriate.
As you’ve seen, the concepts behind hydro
power are simple. Water turns a turbine, the turbine spins
a generator, and electricity comes out the other side.
Even a novice with little or no experience could produce some
hydroelectricity – given enough water power.
All Canyon Hydro turbines are carefully inspected before shipping.
But we’ve also emphasized efficiency and
durability – getting the most power for your hard-earned money.
Unless you have much more water than you need, you’ll want to
squeeze every possible watt out of your stream. You will
also want a rock-solid system that continues delivering reliable
power year after year. Not surprisingly, the systems we
build at Canyon Hydro live up to the standards we emphasize
throughout this Guide.
We have to admit, we love hydro. We
take great satisfaction in finding new ways to make
hydro-electric generation easier and more practical. For
more than 35 years, we’ve continually improved our turbine
designs and system components. Canyon Hydro systems are
remarkably efficient and highly reliable; the systems we
installed 35 years ago are still running today. Perhaps
that’s why Canyon Hydro systems, from 5Kw to 10MW and beyond, are producing reliable
electrical power all over the world.
