    Lestor Pelton is credited with inventing the hydro turbine. He thought up this innovation during the gold rush era of the 1850s when gold mines were often powered by coal or wood furnaces or waterwheels. His earliest model utilized cups on a waterwheel type device that better captured the energy of stream flows.
