Downspout trickle charger system design



To take advantage of rain or wind, this is a miniaturized hydro-electric plant design based on 1/10th-inch of rain to an inch of rain per hour on a 2,000-square-foot roof. With a windmill the system becomes very nice for homes using PV-battery arrays to keep power coming for cloudy days, and night-time or…
