We will be running water through the gravitational vortex hydroelectric model (it’s the acrylic cylinder in front of Matt) with different 3D-printed turbine blades to derive the optimal power output for the Annandale Hydro facility. The full-scale facility is currently in the FERC permitting stage with installation on the Saw Kill slated for the fall of 2019.
