The existing turbine on the property was in operation as late as 1950. Our challenge here is attempting to refurbish the old turbine or replace it with a new turbine. Studies have been done on the water flow coming out of the dam, flow of water coming into the pond and calculations on the amount of head and possible power that we could create.
The other challenge is finding a hydro turbine that can also work in a harsh New Hampshire winter. Since we are fairly remote the dependability of this installation is a critical criteria. Combine this with the consulting expertise to make this work in parallel with our other form of alternative engergy our solar system.
