Seeing is Believing!



We inspected the small hydroelectric power generation at Hinohara, mountain area in far west of Tokyo which took us 2 hours drive. This facility personally built 2 years ago and the cost of construction was 90 million yen. The way of power generation has been making use of the difference of elevation 91m though 900m canal. The repot says it makes the power generate 49 kW/h.

I was so interested in this hydroelectric power because chichibu is so suitable mountain area for such power facilities that I wish these hydroelectric facilities would be built in Chichibu in a few year.
