Water, Wind, Solar Power Plant

This power plant uses the landscape in three ways to create power that can be regulated keeping surges at a minimum. The power plant is adjacent to an area were deep water is on one side and lower land or water on the other. This creates a natural gravity flow of water in a cut channel that slowly lowers in elevation while turning water turbines. The cover over the trenched channel protecting wild life is made of solar panel materials to creates a wind tunnel the length of the channel. Turbines in the water, above water as windmills.

Having three types of sources to collect electricity from gives the opportunity to balance them out so you do not have power surges. The water is always flowing at a measured rate and with sea gates that can be maintained. The size of the tunnel over the top of the channel with the water flow rate will determine the amount of power collected from wind. The solar is passive enough that you can determine by the weather, sometimes days in advance how much sun or cloud coverage there will be and how much power will be produced daily. The water pouring down creating a constant flow without damming a river and causing damage to the environment or fish is a plus. The rush of water with a cover over the channel creates a wind tunnel so there is no lack of wind issues, the speed can be adjusted, and no conflict with birds.

The construction is as easy as cutting a channel that lowers in depth, putting hydro and wind turbines in and covering it with solar panels. This can be scaled in any sizes from a large power plant or small such as inside a plastic tube that can be taken out into the field. With turbines inside the tube, the ability to set the tube into a stream and capture the energy from the moving flow of a river or body of water.

The market is anyone who needs electricity. By having a few diagrams of how to make power plants from tubes providing electricity cheaply, green, and in small amounts. Kind of like wind-up flash lights turn energy into electricity.

Depending on the location of the channel it can be used to harvest minerals or other items out of the water.
