The hydro turbine that generates electricity creating a vortex in any ditch

Rivers have been used for decades to extract electricity. This small vortex microturbine works in any ditch and provides electricity to more than 200 houses. We are increasingly aware that we not only have to reduce fossil fuel consumption, but also use other systems that allow us to extract electricity from anywhere where the law of energy conservation allows us. This is what this vortex hydro turbine from the Belgian company Turbulent does. Since the days of the water mills that were used to grind grain centuries ago, we have harnessed the power of rivers. It's what power plants do. But big rivers only cover a small area of ​​a country. How can we take advantage of the thousands of irrigation ditches or streams that are relatively abundant, to generate electricity? Turbu...
