Electric energy production in small-scale hydropower stations is attractive from both an ecological and an economical point of view. Technological innovations and measures to lessen environmental impacts make small-scale hydropower stations inexpensive and justified energy sources that provide renewable energy on an independent basis and help not only to protect the environment but also to weaken human dependence on fossil fuels. This study is devoted to finding solutions based on renewable energy technologies and innovations in Uzbekistan. This article is devoted to the development of a water wheel experimental model for the micro-hydroelectric power station. Experimental studies were carried out on the basis of this model and obtained results were used in the preliminary calculations. The results from the calculations showed that the installation can generate 7-11 kWh of electricity per hour, about 168-264 kWh of electricity per day and 61 to 96 MWh of electricity per year.
