Off-grid, small hydro system to power Australian alpine hub

An off-grid micro-hydro power system will be installed at a major tourist spot on Mount Stirling in Victoria, Australia as part of a state government-funded project to develop the country’s first 100 per cent renewable powered alpine hub.

The state Labor government said on Monday it had granted $210,000 in funding for construction of the micro-hydroelectricity system, which would replace a “large, noisy and smelly” diesel generator which was “at odds” with the natural environment.
