Pelton Hydroelectricity

High Head Pelton Turbine

This Pelton turbine is working off 100 feet of head and has one valve/nozzle. It is controlled using a motorised spear valve. As the river dries up in the summer months the valve will wind-in to maintain power production in varying water conditions. This turbine produces up to 5.5kW and connects directly to the mains electricity supply.
