Off-Grid Battery-Based Hydro-Electric System
OFF-GRID BATTERY-BASED HYDRO-ELECTRIC SYSTEM Most small off-grid hydro systems are battery-based. Battery systems have great flexibility and can be combined with other energy sources, such as wind generators and solar-electric arrays, if your stream is seasonal. Because stream flow is usually consistent, battery charging is as well, and it’s often possible to use a relatively small battery bank. Instantaneous demand (watts) will be limited not by the water potential or turbine, but by the size of the inverter.
