Hydropower Startup Creates Small Floating Turbine, Touting Access And Affordability

HOOK, HAMPSHIRE - APRIL 04: Managing Director Sam Maitland consults with company founder Henry Reily-Collins on a phonecall, during the installation of a "Picostream" floating turbine generator on April 04, 2023 in Hook, Hampshire. Amid persistently high energy prices and environmental concerns, interest has grown in alternative energy sources. While most of the attention is aimed at solar and wind energy, hydro electricity is seeing an increase in available options. The Fish Friendly Hydro Company is in the process of developing a floating hydropower turbine generator that can be installed in flowing water on residential and commercial properties, with their 1000 watt PicoStream producing the same amount of electricity in a year as a 40 solar panel array or a 4kW wind turbine. Designed specifically to have a very low impact on the ecology of the waterway, the turbine floats on the surface, meaning the river requires no harmful damming. (Photo by Leon Neal/Getty Images)
