On your appliance you will see the number of watts that each appliance uses. A washing machine creating its own hot water for example might 2000 watts. This is 2 kilowatts per hour.
hydropower, or water power, required a bit more research. At first, Tom was exasperated, looking at all the work involved. He had thought he could pile up dirt in the back corner of his backyard, set up a source of water, run it through a pipe to a generator that would not only supply electricity to their house, but also pump the water back up the hill to the source of water, to have it go all over again.

7) Multiply (Average stream velocity x Average cross section area x Friction correction factor of 0.8. = Q) Note: Due to friction, bottom irregularities, etc. this is the least accurate measurement. It is likely only about 15-20% accurate at best. Concrete channels are best and rough streambeds the worst cases for using this method. Still, it will be a better stream flow estimation than a rough estimate or wild guess.
