The numerous rivers in the state provide most of the water needs of the residents, as well as hydropower energy. In addition to this, many of these rivers are designated “Blue Ribbon” trout fishing rivers, drawing anglers from around the world.

It’s green yet reliable-You can’t run from it. Everyone’s pushing to find more energy company resources. And biomass is sitting there right under your nose. Take advantage of a green fuel source that has been time tested.

In our case we will start with a Canyon Hydro — 350 kW Pelton wheel similar to the one picture above. This unit has a 350KW GE induction generator with servo control and grid switching gear. It is currently a 28 inch pitch Pelton wheel with a single 4.125 inch dia. nozzle (3.5 in effective jet) which can be upgraded to a two jet unit for more flow and therefore power. Our potential head is less than the design head so we will seek to increase flow. The variable jet control combined with the extra nozzle and pelton turbine gives a better range of efficiencies for our variable flow regime. A crossflow unit would probably be a better match but it has less efficiency.

Renewable energy resources also include the wind. Some days it blows a soft breeze. Other days it can be extremely harsh though. Windmills and turbines can be placed out in the open to be able to collect this type of energy. Some of them are very small to place in your own yard. Others are huge and are found on the open plains strategically placed.
