PowerSpout Twin Packs are now available!

Twin packs provide you with the opportunity to buy 2 turbines at once for a reduced price. Both turbines in a twin pack are for identical site data only. Contact us for pricing.


Ruggedlybuilt, twin nozzle, 1300W micro hydro turbine. Comes with all parts and tools for field assembly. (More pictures and Video below, scroll down!)


PowerSpout PLT, This turbine can be designed to charge 12v 24v or 48v batteries or connect directly to a grid-tied inverter.  A good choice for off-grid installations where the turbine is within 100ft (30meters) of the battery bank or a grid-tied installation where the turbine is less than 2000ft away from inverter location. If off-grid it will require a load dump charge controller to protect the battery bank. Thes are also easily be paired with a MidNite Classic charge controller!

PowerSpout PLT comes in models PLT(14,28,40,56,80,170,200) Contact us to make sure you get the right model before you order.

Features:
  • Up to 1300W continuous production (production dependent upon resource head)
  • Units are designed to be installed in parallel to capture very large flowrates
  • Operates from 3meters of head up to 100m (10ft-328ft)
  • Over 6 years continuous field operation with zero maintenance.

Version Comparison

There are six versions of PowerSpout available to suit different situations. These are briefly described below. Additional details are provided in the PowerSpout documentation attached above. Please Contact us if you have questions! 




Below will help you choose the correct model depending on your flow rate and head drop.

  • PowerSpout PLT. This model is great for flows with a large head drop and a low flow rate. It is designed to directly charge 12v 24v or 48v batteries or connect directly to a grid-tied inverter.  A good choice for off-grid installations where the turbine is within 100ft (30meters) of the battery bank or a grid-tied installation where the turbine is less than 2000ft away from inverter location. If off-grid, turbine will Require a load dump charge controller to protect the battery bank. This turbine can reach power output of up to 1500 watts.

  • PowerSpout PLT with Crowbar. This turbine not only comes with all the features of the PowerSpout PLT, but also includes a fitted overvolts crowbar that will drop voltage to zero if the voltage limit is exceeded to protect the turbine. This enables you to use an Outback FM60/80 charge controller with a lower input voltage range, helping maximize power output.

  • PowerSpout Turgo. The Turgo is a versatile turbine and can be used for mid range flow rates and head drops. It is a good choice for off grid applications where the the distance is between the inverter and the load is 6-30 meters (20-100 feet). Requires two transformers; one for each phase at the receiving location. This turbine can reach a power output of up to 1500 watts.

  • PowerSpout Turgo with Crowbar. This turbine not only comes with all the features of the PowerSpout TRG, but also includes a fitted overvolts crowbar that will drop voltage to zero if the voltage limit is exceeded to protect the turbine. This enables you to use an Outback FM60/80 charge controller with a lower input voltage range, helping maximize power output.

  • PowerSpout LH = Low Head. This means it is designed for a stream with low water height but a high flow rate. It can produce a power output of 1500 watts.
