The purpose of this project is to design a micro hydropower plant on the Mołstowa river near the Grąd town. The project was done based on 17 years of data from the hydrological yearbooks, topographic maps of terrain, cross-section to the Grąd river , and a map of the catchment of the Rega river. The project includes: Hydrologic analysis of the flow data, location of the reservoir, the analysis of power generation capacity, and the weir with the fish ladder. This type of power plants make possible to dispersed produce of electricity. Micro hydro power plant is simple in design, it can be built within about a year, does not require large amounts of money so it can be built by a private investor. Micro hydro can use the potential of lowland rivers. Throughout the country there are many unused water sills which can be easily adapted to the micro hydro power. And in the future micro hydro power plant may be a source of electricity for zero-emission buildings.
This hydropower plant is designed according to Polish law.
