Spinning Gravity Into Renewable Energy
The LucidPipe Power System spins gravity into renewable energy by harvesting an otherwise untapped resource: excess pressure in gravity-fed water pipelines. We designed LucidPipe with municipal water agencies in mind. After years of research, development and discussions with water managers across the country, we developed and patented a unique, spherical, in-pipe hydropower turbine that generates electricity without removing all of the pressure or disrupting water delivery. Because the turbines operate inside of pipes, LucidPipe doesn’t harm ecosystems. This hydropower is clean, consistent and controlled by the water agency. For many cities and towns around the world, drinking water comes from mountain reservoirs and high elevation storage tanks.
