Along with the population growth that increases every year in Indonesia, The more electrical energy needs that must be distributed to each user. The use of electrical energy in Indonesia is still a lot that uses limited fuel sources which can run out over time. Meanwhile, Indonesia has a lot of renewable energy potential, such as the use of rivers or irrigation channels as a source of renewable energy. This research is to design and build a screw turbine using irrigation channels to turn it into electrical energy. In the process of product design and development in this study using the Ulrich method by comparing 3 product concepts and in this study, the first concept was chosen because it was considered in accordance with the needs, including easy fabrication, good function,
good portability andlower costs than existing products. For the performance test results made with an irrigation environment that has a current speed of 086 m/s, the resulting generator output is 69.7V, 0.56A and the generator rotation is 357.3 rpm. For the total cost of production HPP (cost of goods manufactured) of Rp. 5,343,000,-
