Siddappa, an illiterate farmer from a small village in India has designed a water mill to generate electricity. From concept to realisation, the farmer did everything on his own. Using simple materials and low-tech solutions he managed to harvest 150 watts of energy from the water mill that he constructed in a canal near his house. Plastic buckets on a wheel are filled by flowing water and put in motion the mill that is connected to a dynamo. Siddappa’s hopes his invention will inspire his fellow villagers
