Hydro is eligible - if you can find an MCS-certified product and installer.  You need a total generation meter that will clock the kWh. A constant 15kW running 24 hours will generate 360 kWh a day. At the full FIT rate of 19.9p per kWh you would get 71.64 a day.

uh huh...... yup - just watching  Grin Grin

Sadly - there is no product accredited for hydro. Or installer. But - as Ted says - its kW x hours per day x 19.9p - assuming that you make power 24/7/365 - which is unlikely in most small / pico / micro hydro installs.

Please tell us more.

I tried to buy this

http://www.sva-auctions.co.uk/html/Lots/lot1_details.html

and this

http://www.sva-auctions.co.uk/html/Lots/lot2_details.html

but failed

Lot one went for 11,000 and Lot 2 went for a surprising 61,000

Never mind i still have the River Jed at the Btm of the garden.
