The New Power Model

From rural electrification to commercial expansion, the demand for energy continues to expand globally. Much of this power will come from distributed, clean, renewable sources. Hydrokinetic power is the lowest cost renewable energy. In most markets micro-grids supported by hydro are ideally suited for the new model of distributed power generation.

Rural Electrification

Expanding access to affordable clean power to rural communities is a major focus for HeliosAltas. Leveraging a combination of public and private partnerships, our rural electrification projects bring energy to the far reaches of the world.

Commercial and Industrial

Every river, canal, and water way provides an opportunity to generate affordable, clean energy. Boosting the bottom line, creating energy independence, and meeting standards set forth by the growing number of environmentally focused government policies. HeliosAltas has the capacity to design and deploy custom energy solutions to meet the demands of commercial and industrial applications.

Showcase Project

Balingasag-Philippine Hybrid Micro-Grid

Brgy. Kibanban, Municipality of Balingasag in Misamis Oriental, Northern Mindanao near Cagayan de Oro City

Project Size:

Two 1 kW Helios micro hydro units combined with 650-Watt PV Solar Panels and two 12-V-150 AH (1.8 kWh) AGM batterie

Application:

  • Provide street illumination using 10, 12-Watt LED lamps, steel poles and an overhead LV distribution line. 600 meters of road is illuminated and made much safer for the village residents.
  • Utility drops to two huts
  • Community water transfer pump and storage tank for the village

Participants:

HeliosAltas: (www.heliosaltas.com)  Micro Hydro technology, Micro Grid integration technology.

DAGPC (Distributor for Helios in the Philippines): Project Development, installation and operation.

National Electric Administration: Authorize the use of the local irrigation canal and provide technical support.

Deployment Considerations

Our expert team provides the necessary guidance and analytical tools for every step of the process.

There are several steps in developing a successful PowerBall project.

  1. Understanding the technology
  2. How it fits the opportunity
  3. Potential output
  4. Evaluating the economic and environmental benefits of the project
  5. Execution and implementation

Site Assessment

  • Note general site description, topology, nearby commerce, etc.
  • Note access to site: roads, trails, gates, etc.
  • Note existing electrical infrastructure
  • Determine the amount of seasonal debris expected to impact the PowerBall
  • Identify pathway for overhead or underground electrical services.
  • Identify nearby load centers and grid infrastructure.

Environmentals

  • Confirm with local authorities protected fauna or flora, regulations and permitting.
  • Confirm with local authorities of noise or visual impact regulations and premitting.
  • Confirm with local authorities of recreational use in area.

Water Way

  • Determine the elevation at the start and end of the proposed canal section of the project.
  • Note canal construction materials.
  • Note the age, wear and upkeep of canal.
  • Determine the canal height and width.
  • Determine the purpose of canal: irrigation, tailrace, channelized stream, etc.

Water Flow

  • Determine average velocity of water.
  • Determine average depth of water
  • Calculate canal above water line.
  • Identify seasonal minimum and maximum flow levels.
  • Identify ambient temperature range and water temperature range
