From the aqueducts of the Roman Empire, through water mills in the Renaissance, to the modern day Hoover Dam, the abundance of flowing water as a renewable source of kinetic energy has always been unparalleled on our planet. The problem is finding an environmentally friendly and economically viable way of harnessing this power without the construction of a dam or other major infrastructure; as these tend to cost millions of dollars, take multiple years to complete and cannot be installed in remote areas where populations could greatly benefit from predictable, renewable electricity.
The Verterra Turbine System is the unique answer needed to solve this problem. The Turbines can be deployed in fully developed urban areas as well as remote, rural environments that may lack the infrastructure required to produce and transmit electricity.
