I was going to put in a micro hydo electric plant to run my house and charge my car but the permits to install it are a killer , and it needed no dam just a turbine like a outboard motor in the river , 2 kw 24/7
I was thinking of lighting half of each tank with leds and having all the plants on that half
run maybe 50 watt a tank , my heaters almost never go on and the filter is 14 watt

I totally agree, my electric went up $100 also. Unfortunately there are tiers to the electric bill and once we pass a certain tier, additional charges occurred. I have a beautiful tank and will have to try to cut back in other areas in the home. Bummer.
