Between solar panels and water turbines all the energy needs of humanity can be meet. There just needs to be more of them made, installed and have power distribution systems set up.

Oil and coal need Riggs to be made, mines to be dug and they are transported across countries, to countries different continents and across the world to get to power plants. Mobile water sources can be relatively close to the cities and solar panels can be placed in array s much closer to a city than oil or coal on a different country.

I notice the cone shaped bars on one side, so I thought it was to stop debris and fish getting caught in the turbine. But when I saw it working in the river it seemed the open end of the Turbine was pointing towards the current!.

all it would take is a thin metal guaze to protect the blades, this should be necessary for swimmers and fish, as well as damage to the turbine from debris.

Make it yourself thanks to Avasva solutions. I think it's the best way to learn how to build it in the cheapest way.

My friend built a water powered generator using Car/truck alternators on a river in Belize 40 yrs. ago. It powered his farm house. So good to see professionals taking it ten times farther.

I guarantee you this is the best fish killer there ever was. you would need a 40 ft micro conical screen before this thing would be safe for fish.
