  • 3 bridge diode
  • 3 bolts
  • thermal grease

  • pelton runner

This can generate about 800W that is stored in your battery bank. Nelson uses his to power his fridge, 2 freezers, house lights, toaster toaster, kettle, PC, TV and even a 180 hot water heater. That’s his entire home. Personally I would build a solar water heater for the hot water and save power for other things around the house. That’s just me! 🙂
