River Turbines

An interesting approach to remote power supply for campgrounds, from yesterday's local paper (electronic version).

Though possibly detracting from the beauty of a river, at least they are not permanent, and should cause no long term damage. Much less environmental effect than a hydro dam, that's for certain.

I saw a different design portable water turbine on a trip in 2011 along Idaho Rt 21, maybe on the Banner Creek south of Stanley.
