This study is about the assessment of a potential microhydro system in an irrigation canal in Lower Magsaysay, Kuya,
Maramag, Bukidnon to power streetlights. The assessment showed that the microhydro have enough potential just
to power streetlights. The microhydro system designed utilizes cross flow turbine of 6 kW power output and generator
with power rating of 6 kW. The microhydro, based on design specifications, can generate maximum power output of 6
kW, which is enough to power streetlights that can cover longer distance based on the guidelines set by the Department
of Energy on road lighting. The microhydro turbine and generator have an estimated cost of Php 81,129.00 and the
street light system at Php 308,844.00. Realization of these systems can greatly help the residents in the area in terms of
accessibility, safety and security.
