Portable Hydro Electric Power Plant

Portable Hydro Electric Power Plant
The above backpack contains a generating hydroelectric plant able to genarate 500-watts of electricity (the equivalent of some 60 solar panels). The system named BPP-2 is made by Bourne Energy and is aimed at developing countries, where a portable generator of this size could provide power to inaccessible areas.
The BPP-2 can generate electricity in any stream deeper than four feet. Two trenches are dug on opposite sides of a river and a lightweight anchor is inserted into each, connecting a synthetic rope between the anchors and the BPP. The civilian BPP is designed for streams moving 7.5 feet per second and is expected to cost around $3,000.
