"It is the first off-the-shelf water-wheel system that can generate a good supply of electricity from as little as an eight-inch water fall." [1]

The prototype has been working successfully at St Catherine's, a National Trust site near Windermere. The water wheel produces one to two kilowatts of power and generates at least 24kw hours of sustainable green energy in a day - just under the average household's daily consumption of about 28kw hours.
