This build manual provides step by step instructions for the construction of the Five Gallon Bucket Hydroelectric Generator developed by Sam Redfield with the Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group (AIDG) in Guatemala. This manual offers guidance for selecting the tools and materials needed to make the generator, as well as techniques involved in its construction. By design, the materials from which the generator is constructed are extremely common. With the exception of the modified alternator, allthe components used here should be readily available just about anywhere.

The generator is experimental. Developed as an effort to address the lack of commercially available small scale hydroelectric generators that are affordable to the average person in developing countries, the generator offers the prospect of clean energy at a relatively modest cost. When compared to the cost of comparably sized photovoltaic, hydroelectric and wind generation systems, the Five Gallon Bucket Generator is competitive and promises to provide cheap clean energy to people who might otherwise not be able to afford it.
