Dear Richard ,

    Thank you for your response. When I said generator I meant hydro
generator not diesel !! Unfortunately the Greek Electricity Board is not
very willing to buy from electricity producers . It likes consumers not
producers ;-))

Yours ,

> Hi Andrew, As your setup seems so ideal for hydro power it would be a
shame if you had to settle for a polluting generator wouldn't it? Are you or
can you be connected to the main power grid? Does the power company that
supplies the grid have a buy back scheme? I am just thinking that if the
answer to those questions is yes, and if you can find someone to loan you
the money up front it should be possible to sell your excess electricity to
the grid  (possibly allowing you to not have to buy expensive and
problematic batteries) at a rate that may help pay off your loan? I hope you
find something that works anyway. Good luck!
