wondering what their power output is? can't find it advertised anywhere. they say hundreds of homes but the homes in their footage look like they don't require much power.

Which voltages and frequencies do the turbines support?

We can fit our turbines to work with any electricity distribution standard in your country. Our operating voltages range from 200V to 480V and both 50Hz and 60Hz systems are supported.

 

so i'm guessing 200-480 volts

Power as in watts. 

 

Looks like it could be more efficient than a normal water turbine.

so it's basically one of these, but can potentially get clogged?

no, a lot more efficient and produces electricity instead of just mechanical work.

I'm guessing they're pretty efficient.  If anyone can squeeze an extra dime out of something its the Dutch.
