(OTCBB:IHDR) (www.internalhydro.com) announced today that IHDR has chosen to certify electrical output of the Energy Commander V low impact hydro unit before the unit is shipped for production purposes in Italy. The electrical production was already displayed from running the generator through three months of runs, but was not measured during engineering studies. Given the unit's demonstrated electrical power output, IHDR's CEO has chosen to certify such output before shipment to the Company's Italian partner, Cm2. Certification of electricity production will be for purposes of pending sales and bids in placing the unit in environments where the unit would face the same flows it was exposed to for three months.
