Fisher & Pykel generators

Fisher and Pykel washing machine motor generators

Fisher and Pykel washing machine motors can be very simply converted to electricity generators. They have a permanent magnet motor that is quite unconventional and also makes the conversion very simple.

They have been used in micro hydroelectric systems, wind turbine generators and other purposes.
