This 5 Gallon Bucket Hydroelectric Generator could literally change the way you harvest FREE power!

This is by far the most innovative modification I’ve found for a five gallon bucket. Sam Redfield developed this design to provide a source of electricity that can be built cheap and hooked up to any source of flowing water, including irrigation systems, creeks and streams, or even sewage systems.

This is just pure genius and if you have access to any running water I would highly suggest you build one, just so you have access to free power if the grid does down.

As you can see by the picture above you don’t need a great deal of running water so you could use a limited running source of water for this project. See the full build manual (PDF) and video below:
