Malibu Hydro... Introduction     Updated April 15, 2017


Celebrating 95,220 hours of hydro power as of Jan 27, 2017. If averaging a 300 kW load, that would be 28,566,000 Kilowatt hours, and if valued at 25 cents a Kilowatt hour if camp was on diesel, that would be worth 7.14 million dollars!

For more than 50 years, Malibu has been subjected to the continual roar and expense of diesel generators. Now, all that has changed! In 2003 we began working on a plan to harness the energy of a near by creek to produce all the electrical power requirements of the camp with our own hydro electric generator. This dream finally came true on Saturday, June 10, 2005.
This web site is presented to outline the scope of this project and to report on the ongoing success. The many pictures and text will familiarize you with the various aspects of this and other hydro systems. For a brief summary of the web site click on 'Overview' or 'Quick Facts'.
The web cameras are updated every two hours, the 'larger view' link will take you to a full size image.

Enjoy!
