Hydroelectric power generator

Recommended Posts

Good morning, Mapache. You might contact Ian Woofenden at the Home Power magazine. As you may know, he has done a number of RE workshops in Costa Rica over the past years. He is a great guy and may know of someone in CR that can furnish and install hydro there. His email address is ian.woofenden@homepower.com, and phone number is 360-293-5863.


Best regards, Richard

I don’t know what your experience level is with hydro power, but there are some simply outstanding articles in past Home Power magazines on the subject written by world-class experts, such as Ian Woofenden. If you are not already aware of this great source of information, you might with to subscribe to their magazine. You can find them on the web at http://www.homepower.com/home They have an online version which allows you to search out hydro topics. I have ever issue since #1, except for those issues that I’ve given away to interested friends.


As an aside, I have been involved with solar power for about 20 years, and presently have a small solar system here in Richmond, VA, employing a couple of Outback inverters, a bank of batteries, solar panels, and when all else fails, a back-up generator. I wish I had a fast moving stream with lots of head, but maybe someday . . .. I have a small home in Santa Barbara, Heredia, and I’d like someday to install solar there.


If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at: rwlceo@aol.com.


Best regards, Richard Leatherman
