The micro-hydro generator project at the Algonquin Eco-Lodge. The lodge is so deep in the forest, on the southern tip of Algonquin Park, that they are not connected to “the grid”. Yet, thanks to their waterfall and a set of turbines, they can generate their own environmentally friendly electricity.
The Eco-Lodge won the 2012 Ontario Tourism Awards – Sustainable Tourism category thanks to, in a large part, these micro-hydro turbines.
