It then outlines in depth:
-how to assess your particular electrical needs.
-how to assess your specific site - including measurement of water flow, water pressure, losses from friction, and the choice of jets.
-how to choose the appropriate system for your needs - including DC systems with turbines and batteries, and AC systems with governing devices
-how to install a microhydro system - including intakes, pipes and penstocks, as well as common obstacles
-the common regulations and incentives for installing microhydro power
