    "all that pipe" is an understatement. Close to a mile. Hydro is the way to go if you have a nearby creek and a large vertical drop.

    Pretty cool.
    Seward has that tunnel that funnels water from Lowell Crk to the bay on miller pt road. They're always looking for hydro power (like grouse lake /crk) and they have it right under their nose. In fact at one time there WAS a hydro operation at Lowell crk.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine!

    That's flipping awesome!! Now all I need is to buy property on a River with a waterfall 1.5km up the hill, build a cabin, get a bunch of pipe and an alternator then I'll be set!
