Mother of All DIYs: Man Makes His Own MicroHydel Power Plant

Oh yes, this really is pushing DIY to the max. Manfred Mornhinweg made use of a stream near his home, to generate power for his place. Building his own microhydro plant required thousands of hours of hardwork for digging and placing the pipes, not to mention the extreme skill required for doing the technical evaluations, getting all equipment in place, and also inventing a few things to get things going along.

It’s a good thing Manfred had the help of neighbors Gabriel and his son who did all the digging for him, while the genius worked hard to get power from the nearby stream.
