I am so thankful I came across this video. He shows us how to take an old washing machine and turn it into a 600 watt water powered generator. This thing is so easy to do and costs so little to build, he runs his entire off the grid cabin in the woods with just one of these bad boys.
With this set up you will have a great deal of energy being produced you could run full appliances and get all your hot water needs. If you camp a lot or have a cabin near a running water source this could save you thousands of dollars in electricity bills and get you one step closer to self sufficiency. Check out the video below
