Kudos to clean energy innovation

The footprint for these generators are practically non-existent

As a one time long term resident of Agassiz, it’s  with great honor to hear that your beloved community is about to become a focal point, world wide, in the development of clean energy.

Later this year, the innovative company, HydroRun Technologies, has developed and will test its new 40 Kilowatt generator in the Fraser River, at Agassiz, on producing clean electricity for up to 40 Agassiz homes.

This floating device, is stationed in streams and rivers, and generates clean electricity by floating back and forth across the current, without having to dam or divert existing water ways.

The footprint for these generators are practically non-existent, and to produce more power, one only has to add more generators, which could be connected in series or run independently of each other.  A dozen of these devices could supply enough power to effectively power the whole community and produce zero carbon emissions.

More importantly, this type of clean energy, can be produced consistently, unlike wind or solar, that is only available when the air is moving or the sun is out, allowing it to be part of the electrical grid, so all the power produced can be used effectively.
