I've heard that too Bob, but the guy in B.C. says that a minimum flow will still keep a secondary bank of batteries in charge while you use off of the first bank, reversing the banks when you get to 50% drawdown or so. I really think the way to go is with falling water vs solar, or wind. I don't intend to spend a fortune on this (don't have it to spend, lol) but I do want to investigate this more in depth. We've got water just behind the house and buildings.
Thanks for your reply, and I hope all is well up there- Mike D.
