    Thanks Rambler for the info,

    I just got the new edition of the Real Goods Solar Living Source Book and I think they said that microhydroelectric really requires a major understanding of engineering and electricity. So I think it's more than I would be able to deal with.

    But there is one of the sunlight charts in there and I guess solar would be an option in VA. But the state doesn't have any grants or rebates for people using solar. I don't know about the grid tie-in, if we can sell electric back to the state.

    That Solar Living Source book is fantastic by the way, I highly recommend it!
