    Are Water Turbine Generators For Home Use Feasible?

    Where can you buy small water turbines? How much are they? How much energy can they produce and how could they be implemented on a small scale?

    It all depends on your supply of water and how well you can harness it.
    In principle any generator or alternator that can be made waterproof will work as long as you have either the flow rate to spin it fast enough or the volume to use gearing to get the speed needed. I would think any farm type wind generator could be adapted to being powered by water.
