Nice!   I love those old turbines.

this line cracked me up

"The ELC was a modest but decently built homemade one. It had been
installed not long ago. I didn't investigate it too much, because I was a
bit worried for my life, as I was standing in deep water, in almost total
darkness, surrounded by naked wires carrying 220V. "

good to see a working system even more cobbled together than mine!

Pretty sure I wouldn't consider that a micro-hydro guide or a solution
to the worlds energy problems, but THAT'S certainly some DIY stuff

Making power though!

Hi Manfred,
I was at your site last night and didn't see this article.
It's quite intresting.

I also saw that you have a new ELC in place to distribute
the power to loads around the house instead of into a
dump load.
