    I think I'm going to start a petition for you to have a brain transplant.

    How much electricity can a turbine that's small enough to fit inside a water supply pipe generate? I'm guessing not enough to be worth the effort.

    Probably would have worked better before installing all the water saver faucets to reduce water use. Doh!

    It wouldn't generate any more power than it would take to run pumps to move the water there in the first place. And the pressure would be cut way down.

    that I couldn't tell you, but if size of the pipe matters then it depends on how much room there is behind the wall to fit the best size pipe for the business and how many turbines are inside the pipes.

    You got the pressure calculation from me didn't you? I mentioned that in the petition. If we put water tanks on the roof too though then the force of gravity can help with that equation.

    pray tell how does the water get up to the tanks on the rough? Free energy.

    Where your idea works is Niagra falls and hoover damn.

    Otherwise most municipalities utilize pumps to pressurize water. Therefore if you put micro turbines in faucets. The pressure will drop, #2 more energy would be required at the municipal pumps.

    Did you loose your job at Obama's green job initiative?

    A more sensible idea, which has already been proposed, is to put turbines underwater in rivers to generate energy.

    maybe in irrigated canals. rivers themselves are made for whitewater rafting, kayaking and fish.
