Internal Hydro Small Hydro Technology Advantages Explained by Energy Saving Inventor
TAMPA, Fla., June 15, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Internal Hydro International Inc.'s (OTCBB:IHDR) (www.InternalHydro.com) Energy Commander small-scale hydro system has superiority over larger turbines, in a system for renewable energy that has never been used. Bud Nelson, inventor of the base technology of IHDR's low impact hydro system has a great deal of experience creating technology that saves energy through water flows and electricity savings. Nelson states that the flexibility of the system to use varied small flow pressures that traditional hydro cannot use and never bother to capture is the key to the system. "No one bothered to use positive displacement like this before, ever since electricity became abundant from other sources; what positive displacement does is use cylinders to capture all of the power of a small flow in a superior fashion to turbines," stated Nelson. "The Energy Commander uses small flows in a small intake compared to turbines, in a fashion that creates energy in a way that does not hurt the environment," Nelson continued. "As we deploy the new system shortly, and other variations I am involved in, the use of this system in so many areas will affect electrical generation around the world. Besides industries such as steel, oil and gas refineries, utility plants, and other readily available flows, our effect in the third world, and other remote locations will change people's lives from dependence of fossil fuel."
