Minneapolis start-up wants to install small-scale hydropower without the need for dams

Ted Christopher wants to capture the energy of flowing water, but without a dam.

“I grew up around rivers, and if you have ever been knee-deep in them, you know how powerful they are,” said Christopher, who was born in La Crosse, Wis.

His Minneapolis-based start-up company, Verterra Energy Inc., has been working to develop a run-of-the-river turbine to generate electricity.
