Waterotor

We all know that the water in a reservoir behind a hydropower dam is potential energy. The stored energy in the reservoir is converted into kinetic energy (motion) as the water flows down a large pipe and spins a turbine. Waterotor uses the power of streaming water too. Easy to implement wherever there is streaming water. No big dams needed, a small river will do.
