Does anyone know the price of a small unit? This would be good if you have a home near a large creek or small river. I know of someone who bought a piece of property with an old mill on it. It already had a dam and a spillway to operate a mill, so they connected a water wheel back to it and ran a generator for their home. 24 hours a day power. Fish were in the pond upstream of the dam. Nice situation, without having to get a permit to dam up flowing water.
