  • know a lot about construction (and )
  • have proper permits from local authorities, both to build and alter water course.

If not, feel free to read on anyway, consult a micro-hydro contractor after taking a peek at our advice on choosing a micro hydro contractor .

  • battery (see below)
  • wiring

In all aspects of a micro hydro system, the key thing to remember is that everything gets wet.
