A motor dynamo-based family pico-hydropower system called Hydro Home System (HHS), targeted to reach power demand at local level, is a rural electrification project. A self-sufficient system with a Pelton turbine directly coupled with motor dynamo, it is capable of continuously generating 100 W electricity using drinking water supply system, to charge a 12 V battery. A regular generation of electricity to charge the battery is sufficient to meet the power demand of a family. Portable, low cost, operated and maintained locally, it turns up as an ideal solution for resolving the energy needs of rural areas, where there is no electricity at all.
