Electric power is generated by power generators submerged to a substantial depth in a body of moving water. The generators are housed in bodies configured to create a large pressure differential across a conduit. This generates a rapid, substantial flow of water through a conduit in which is located an impeller which is driven to energize a generator to thereby generate electricity.
