Hydro Power

Hydro power is power derived from the energy of falling or running water, such as rivers. Micro and pico hydro turbines are small-scale producers of energy, which do not cause as much impact to the surrounding ecosystems and landscape as larger hydro developments, but can provide electricity to people for domestic use such as lighting and can also improve income through greater business activity.
