Is Hydro the only acceptable sorm of generation

It has happened to me again. I was asked to help a client who wanted to install a solar PV system to generate their own electricity. No urgent need for it other than the clients "want to do their bit for the environment". Once I explained the probable costs involved, shockingly they quickly went off the idea. I suggested either wind or water but these did not meet with too much enthusiasm either. Turns out they are active in a protest group trying to stop a wind farm being built on the hill opposite their front door and having their own wind turbine did not sit too well. They have plenty of wind (which is why they are building the wind farm opposite) and it was possible to see the cogs turning - was it possible to do it and avoid being hung by their mates?

A bit of further investigation dug out that uncle, who owns the farm next door, has "a bit of a stream. Probably too small". A swift survey showed that the stream has the potential to support a 2kw turbine - enough for 3 houses. The clients, their uncle and the guy next door are now looking to club together to put the turbine in, and have free electricity for the next 20 years.

Every time I do a seminar I tell the audience to check their stream, however small it may seem. But they never do. They always think I don't mean them because their stream really is too small. But I do, and it probably isn't.

Howdy Tim,
If you run across more folks that freak-out at the price of solar just as I did when I got a quote maybe send them my way or even sign up as a team member with me to turn them on to a new solar rental program for residential homes where folks pay a fixed rate for power for up to 25-years that should be about what they are currently paying for power and in some cases even less. Take a peak at my site for more information.
Peace,
Frank

I need to find out more about hydro. I have a small stream (0-1000+litres/minute, usually around 50-250, 25m head). My particular difficulty at this point is finding designs for the intake, which must deal with great spates and dry spells too. Can you please advise?
