Enota is in the process of creating an educational facility to teach and educate about the three main forms of Alternative Energy. 

We have already built our Hydro plant.  This plant is capable of producing 30Kw per hour.  At this rate we could power a small village if necessary.   The mechanism that generates the energy was shipped in from Washington State and we are told it is one of the largest Micro- Hydro plants in this region. 

At this time we are struggling with the Forest Service to use a pre-existing  water source originally created for this facility with more than enough water and head to power most of our facility.  The hydro plant was installed with all environmental concerns considered,  not knowing we could not use the system already created for our facility.  Please, if any of you out there can help us work with the Forest Service please call us at 800-990-8869 and talk to Swan Freed to volunteer your services.
