A farm that generates hydro electricity

post-image
This farm in Tasmania generates hydro electricity which it sells as well as uses.. Water for the system comes from a large dam on the property, which is fed by a creek. The water passes from the dam through a pipeline, which has a fall of about 100m, down to the hydro station. After it has passed through the station the water then flows back into the creek. The whole system can be controlled remotely from almost anywhere and there is minimal maintenance. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.themercury.com.au/news/tasmania/farm-family-is-turning-water-into-money/news-story/60c5625ebc57fd2048468df9406199f8
